Serving the family, North Santiam Funeral
God saw she was getting tired and a
cure was not to be, so He put his arms around her and
whispered, “Come with Me”. With tear filled eyes we
watched her suffer and fade away. Although we loved her
deeply, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped
beating, hard working hands put to rest. God broke our hearts
to prove to us He only takes the best.
