God saw you were getting tired and
A cure was not to be,
So he put His arms around you and
Whispered, “Come with me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you
Suffer and saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating.
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
We will NEVER forget you Woo. The brightest star in the sky will be you looking down on us. As per Gary's request a private cremation ceremony will be held for family. In lieu of flowers please donate to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
