God saw 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 sufferand saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, we couldn't make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
