It's so hard to say goodbye...





God Saw You Getting Tired

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 eyes
We watched you suffer
And saw you fade away
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.

It's lonesome here without you
We miss you more each day
Life doesn't seem the same
Since you've gone away.

When days are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong
We seem to hear you whisper
'Cheer up and carry on.'

Each time we see your picture
You seem to smile and say
'Don't cry, I'm in God's keeping
We'll meet again someday.'

We are praying for you here at Ashcamp, KY and I plan to be one of those who offer hugs and tears to share with your Mommy... She is such a special person in my life. I wanted so much to come to TX and be a support for her but it was not possible at this time...
Prayerfuly...

HUGS & PRAYERS now and always. I read where you talked about there being a time that the emails stop, just know that you can email me and cry/vent whenever you want/need to, even though you don't know me!
