In Tribute
God Saw you getting weaker so He did what He knew best, He came and stood beside you, and whispered, "come to rest," If love alone could save you, you never would have died. You bade no one a last farewell nor even said goodbye, You were gone before we knew it and only God knew why.

Humbly Submitted
