God saw you were getting tired; when healing was not to be, so he put his arm around you and whispered, “Come with me”. You have tried so hard to stay. Beautiful memories we’ll cherish forever, your smile and voice we'll miss each day. A heart of gold stopped beating; hard working hands at rest; God's garden must be beautiful, for he only takes the best.
