"God saw she was getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her and whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes we watched her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay.
A golden heart has stopped beating.
Hard-working hands came to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
God only takes the best."
