We stood beside your bed -- how pale
you were and tired. How slow and labored every breath. You gave no sign, you could not see, yet still we felt You'd waited
for our retun -- you knew that we were there. Then that last long breath, as a sigh of one laying down a burden too long
carried, and you were gone. But in going -- that smile, your look of wonder, of happiness as though you beheld Heaven
opening with host of welcoming angels and loved ones coming to meet you. The pallor of long illness left your face, a
glow of health replaced the ravages of your sufferings. Laughing and crying we held each other, saying "How beautiful
he looks, so happy, how much at peace." This was your precious last gift to us -- your farewell; this glimpse with you into eternity.
After a illness, God looked down ans saw his body was tired, his mind weary, so he did what He thought was best. He
put his arms around him and took him home to rest.
