"God saw that 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 we watched you, as we saw you pass away; Although we love you deeply, we could not make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest; God broke our hearts to prove to us ... He only takes the best."
