“God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he wrapped his arms around him and whispered “come to me”. Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. With tearful eyes we said goodbye and had to walk away. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands put to rest but we remember always that he truly was the best
