“God saw that she was getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around her and said, “Come with me”, with tearful eyes we watched her suffer and saw her fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating; hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Although her heart stopped beating, her love will always remain. Her absence puts upon our hearts a very heavy strain, for now she is in a place of everlasting rest. We just have to understand that God, He only takes the best.”
