Although your work on earth is done,
Your life in heaven has just begun.
Your struggles here were hard and long,
But they're over now; you're finally home.
Life wasn't easy, by choice or fate.
A decision made, sometimes too late.
A fight to the finish, always strong.
Rest easy, Neb, you're finally home.
