God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be. He closed His arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me." In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade away. Our hearts were almost broken you fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping so peacefully free from pain, we could not wish you back to suffer so again. So keep Your arms around her, Lord, and give her special care make up for all she suffered and let her know we care.

Special thanks to the caregivers; Angie Fugate, Wanda Workman , Margaret Mollohan, Joyce McGlothlin and Brenda Truman, who provided so much loving care and compassion throughout the years of mom's illness.
