God saw you getting tired and a cure not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, Come to Me. With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you pass away and although I loved you dearly I 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. Love Mom
