God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to me”. With tearful eyes and broken hearts we watched you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest, in that moment God had proved to us he only takes the best.
