With tearful eyes I watched you, slowly fade away,

Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.

God broke my heart to prove to me,

He only takes the best.

Your memory is our keep sake with us you will never part.

God has you in his keeping, but we have

you in our hearts.

Love Your Parents

Alonzo and Sharon
