God saw you getting tired; a cure was not to be. He wrapped you in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me'. You suffered much in silence; your spirit did not bend. You faced your pain with courage, until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us but your fight was not in vain, God took you to His loving home and freed you from the pain.
