God saw you getting weary,He did what he thought best,he put his arms around you and said”come and rest.” He opened up his golden gates on that heartbreaking day,and with his arms around you,you gently slipped away. It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone; a part of us went with you the day God called you home.
