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 fall away, although we couldn't bear to lose you we could not ask you to stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands were laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us that he only takes the best.
