“He Only Takes The Best”
God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, come unto me. With tear-filled eyes we watch you, we watched you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the Best!
