She had a voice of an angel
   I could listen all day long.
One took comfort in her smile
   Her words were like a song.

Her laughter was so infectious.
   She had a laugh that could make you cry.
She had a knack for performing for us
   Yet, there was understanding in her eyes.

I'm gonna miss my dear friend, Nancy,
   Now that she's gone to that sweet by and by.
I know I'll see her again some day,
   And so you'll know... Yes, grown men do cry.
