“God saw he was getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put His arms around him, and whispered come with Me. With tearful eyes we watched him, suffer and saw him fade away. Although we couldn’t bear to lose him, we could not bid him stay. A golden hear stopped beating, hard working hands laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the Best.”
