Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

Bill Naumann lost his life in a accident while on a ladder. In the short amount of time that I have known him, Bill always made me feel welcomed. He was introduced to me by my special friend Rich DeJean. All three of us spend time together for luncheons, barbecues and Bronco games. I also attended his last birthday party. Bill was a very generous and special person. Bill was also a loving husband, father and grandfather. He always made sure everyone was taken care of. I wish I would of spend more time with him. Anyone wouldn't have to know him that long to know he was the most wonderful man. Bill, will be
missed, always...~


His funeral service was held at Fort Logan Cemetery in Denver Colorado on 11/ 27/ 2012 at 3:00 pm. Service performed by Okpe Joseph and Hannah Itugbu. Also Honor Guards performed the Sounding of Taps and Firing of Volleys.
