“God looked around his garden and found an empty place, He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s gardens must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered 'Peace be thine.'"
