“In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade away.
You faced your task with courage, your spirit did not bend.
And still you kept on fighting, until the very end.
God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be,
so He put His arms around you and whispered “Come to Me”.
So when we saw you sleeping so peaceful and free from pain.
We could not wish you back to suffer that again.
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.
Always loved and forever missed by your family and friends.”
