Obituary for Kimberly Nelson
Kimberly Nelson was born to Rodney and Karen Ford Nelson on October 25, 2001 at Southwest Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Kimberly was the apple of our eye and spoiled by all of her family members.
When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mild
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud, before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find
