"God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered "Come with Me". With tearful eyes I watched you suffer, and saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me, He only takes the best. A million times I think of you, a million times I've cried. If love alone could have saved you, you would have never died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart you had a special place. No one will ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone. For most of me went with you, that day God took you home."
