Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A heart of gold stopped throbbing. God broke our heart to prove to us, he only takes the best. Continue resting in God’s mighty hands. Those we love don’t go, they walk beside us everyday, unseen and unheard but always near. So loved. So missed. So very dear. Fly with the angels.

“Naked (without possessions) I came [into this world] from my mother’s womb,
And naked I will return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
