  1. God saw you getting tired,
    The cure was not to be
    He wrapped you in His Loving Arms
    And whispered, “Come with Me”
    You suffered much in silenced
    Your spirit did not bend
    You faced your pain with Courage
    Until the very end
    You tried so hard to stay with us
    Your fight was not in vain
    God took you to his loving house
    And freed you from your pain
    A golden heart stopped beating
    Your loving arms at rest
    God Broke Our Hearts To Prove To Us,
    He Only Takes The Best!

  2. I’m sorry for your loss. It’s hard to find the right words to say at a time like these. But I would like to encourage you to read the bible because is truly the only source of comfort and hope. It will bring clarity to all the unanswered questions regarding death. It will bring you peace of mind because you will know why humans die, what happens after death but most important what hope there is for all those who fell sleep in death 5:28, 29, Hechos 24:15.
    I will keep your family in my prayers. Take care.
