Mom, God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down on earth and saw your tire face. He put his arms around and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful. He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering. He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered "peace to thine". It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go along. Part of us went with you the day God took you home. If tears could build a staircase and heartaches make a lane, we would walk a path to Heaven to be with you again. Until we meet again, especially from your two angels, the Captain and the Mate.
