In lieu of flowers please send donations to St. Mother of Calcutta Parish, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, or the American Cancer Society.
God saw you were getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
and whispered "Come with me."
With tearful hearts we watched
you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
