  1. God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you, and whispered “Come with ME”. with tearful eye we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hand at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

    Rest in Peace, Mom. You will be missed. Love you always.

  2. My deepest condolences go out to my cousin Nan’s family. Although I don’t know many of you my heart feels for your loss. May she rest with God and be in Peace. We got to know each other really well as young teenagers and mothers until she moved away and life moved on.
