God saw you were getting weary, so he did what he knew best. He came and stood beside you and whispered, “Come and Rest.” You said your last farewell and bid each one good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. Good-bye, Mother, take your rest. We love you, but God loved you best.
