Larry; God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered "Come to me.  A willing heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. There is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. But we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. (Excerpts by Anonymous)
