We can rejoice in Vanita Wood’s life
It was well lived
Youthful to the end
By a determined follower of the Lord Jesus Christ

She was competent and capable
Loyal to family, friends and her Lord
Quick to help
Slow to criticize

Vanita Wood was gifted with great insight
People never fooled her
She understood what she was doing
Always focused on what the Lord would have her do

Her family was central to her existence
She was loving and kind
Wise and merciful
A foundation stone that touched them all

Vanita Wood was never distant
Even in her quietness she communicated
People were important to her
Life was for living in Christ

Every day was another day to care
Generous, peaceful and unchanging
One day we will see her again
Until that time we will not forget her love
