"God saw you getting tired, and a
cure was not to be. So he put his
arms around you, and whispered
"Come to Me." With tearful
eyes we watched you, and saw
you pass away. Although we
loved you dearly, we could not
make you stay. A golden heart
stopped beating, hard working
hands at rest. God broke our
hearts to prove to us, He only
takes the best."
