God saw her getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put his arms around her and whispered “Come to Me”.  With tearful eyes, we watched her suffer, and saw her slowly fading away.  Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay.  A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands put to rest.  God broke our hearts, to prove to us, He only takes the best.

Psalm 104, Verses 33-34; I will sing praise to the Lord all my life, may meditation be pleasing to Him as I rejoice in the Lord.

Arrangements are with Frederick Bros. Funeral Home, Theresa, NY.
