God saw you getting tired When a cure was not to be So he closed his arms around you And whispered "Come to Me." When we saw you sleeping So peaceful, free from pain We could not wish you back To suffer that again. So treasure him Lord, In your Garden of Rest For here on Earth, he was the very best. Go in peace Dad - We love you. GREEN ACRES FUNERAL CHAPEL 222-3241
