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.
