** GOD SAW **

God saw you were getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you
and whispered "Come to Me".

With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you fade away,
and though we love you dearly,
we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Hello Sweetie... Thinking of you today on your Angel day. Every time I hear Elvis singing or drink a Pepsi I think of you and send you a 'little finger wave'. You left us nine years ago today and I still miss you. Your loving friend, Dee
