“God saw that you were getting tired and a cure was not to be. So, He put His arms around you, and whispered, “Come home 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, a determined spirit was at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best”
