Passed Away On: March 6, 2022
With a heavy heart, I know that you’re in a better place. God only takes the best. He saw that you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come home with me.” With tears in our eyes, we let you go and saw you slip away. Although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. Your precious heart stopped beating and hard-working hands now rest. God breaks our hearts to prove to us that he only takes the best. Love you, Mom, you can now rest in peace.
