"God say you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arm around you and whispered, 'Come with me.' With tearful eyes I watched and saw you pass away. Although I love you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stops beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me that he only takes the best." - Anonymous
