“A Caring Family, Caring For Families”
God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
He knew you were suffering, He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills too hard to climb
He closed your weary eyelids and 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.
