God saw that you were getting tired,
The Guest Book is expired.
And a cure was not to be;
So He put His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer,
And saw you fade away;
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands came to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
That He only takes the best.
We Love & Miss You, Your Family
