"God Saw You Getting Tired"

God saw you getting tired 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, laying loving hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

On Behalf of the Banales Family to the Barretto Family..
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again

Love Always, Banales Family, Ventura,Ca.

I would like to share with you a few words for my grandmother
She was a wonderful and loving lady with a great since of humor
My heart will always remember with the fondest smile
My memories will be kept close to my very own heart
And I hope she knew I loved her from the very start
You'll be missed grandma.
