So He put his arms around you, and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you and wept on that very day, and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. So when we saw you sleeping so peacefully from pain, we could not wish you back to suffer that way again. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands went to rest, God took you to prove to us, He only takes the very best. In life we’ll miss you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts you’ll always hold a special place, no one could ever fill.
