God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put your arms around you
And whispered, “come with me”
With tearful eyes we watched
You slowly fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We would not make you stay
A golden heart stopped beating
Your hard working hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
“He only takes the Best.”
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
