God looked around His garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful. He only takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering. He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road getting rough and the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you the day God took you home.
If tears could build a stairway and heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk a path to heaven to be with you again.

To the Allen family: My spirit was deeply sadden to hear of Lisa's passing, but like many others, her smile and good nature is what will be remembered and missed. I pray that you all find comfort in knowing that God makes no mistakes. It is at this moment in life, we have no other choice but to trust Him and believe He's working all things out for our good. God bless and keep you all.
