GOD saw that he was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around him and whispered “Come with me”. With tearful eyes, we watched him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. GOD broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best. We love and miss you everyday and cherish the day we can be together again.
