God’s Garden

God looked around His garden

And He 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 garden 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.

He saw that the road was getting rough,

And the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids,

And whispered, “Peace be thine”.

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn’t go alone,

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.



The family wishes to acknowledge with deep appreciation the many expressions of love, concern and kindness shown to them during their time of bereavement.

May God Bless You and Keep You!

The family of Kay Wade
