God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be.

So he closed his

arms around you,

And whispered, “Come to Me.”

You didn’t deserve what

you went through,

So He gave you a rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful

He only takes the best.

And when we saw you sleeping,

So peaceful and free from pain,

We could not wish you back

To suffer that again.

A golden heart

stopped beating,

Hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts

to prove to us,

He only takes the best.

A celebration of Louise’s life was held June 6 at the New Hazelton Lion’s Hall.
