  1. God looked around His garden & found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth & saw your tired face. He put his arms around you & lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful – He always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough & the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids & whispered .Peace be thine.. It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home. My deepest condolences! May God Grant you Serenity, Courage & Wisdom through this difficult time!
