Our family was so blessed to have a wife, mother, and grandmother that loved us like Jesus. Our hearts hurt, but we know she is with our Lord and Savior, and dancing on the streets of gold, with her sisters, brother, mom and dad.
We are thankful to God, that he gave us this amazing wife, mother and grandmother for 87 years.
God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you, And whispered, "Come to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass 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
