    God looked around his garden, and found an empty space.Then he looked down from heaven and saw my tired face. He put his arms around me and lifted me to rest. God's garden must be beautiful for he only takes the best. He knew that I was suffering He knew I was in pain. He saw the road was getting rough, and steps were hard to climb. So he closed my weary eyes and whispered, "Peace be thine." It broke my heart to leave you all, but I knew I wouldn't be alone. For Mom and Dad, Brenna and Diane were all waiting for me to come home. I love you all Mom
