God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
And whispered ,come to me.
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
And though 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 to us
He Only Takes The Best

Seconds pass as hours as my mind wanders,
Sitting beside you, sharing your air, I inhale slowly attempting to end your despair
As the sound of your voice rings in the air; a sound I wish to always keep near
Your strength empowering, as frown lines wrinkle your brow
Each line etching my heart, a pain indescribable
Selfishly I want your hand in mine always while simultaneously I pray for your wings
Although so unfair, my past path was made clear, Seconds minutes hours we shared
Thankful to have been birthed by you, I will forever love you and
hold you tightly in my heart
Special Memories from Youngest
There were times as a child she would tell me things I didn’t understand. As I grow older I find myself
with vibrant memories of leaving Mt Zion in her Tahoe, heading to IHOP after church. My Gam was a
smart, humble, beautiful and courageous woman. The irony of the fact that your best days can also be
your worst days will forever remain with me; a true and constant reminder to stay humble. You did
ENOUGH, Love you and see you again.
~ Quentin, Analysia, Kairo
To Make You Proud
Early years to old age, you stayed consistent never strayed
Corpus Christi to Disneyland you gave us love with open hands
“Take care of them babies like a man” Your words and values implanted inside my head;
I’ll make you proud I love you Gam……….
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I
heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, work or
play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has
left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship started, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I
too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s
been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all
too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted
me now, He set me free.
