God’s Garden. God looked around His garden and He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and He saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful. He only 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. You left us beautiful memories. Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.

Even though I am an adult now, I still remember going to Rabbits house and watching him can jams and jellies. He was always goofing around and playing with my mom, Duck’s. I cannot forget the square dancing, that was always fun to see him and Olive in their out fits. He was a great Granpa I will never forget all the wonderful memories. I know he is at peace, so thats very conforting!!

I thought the world of your husband/father. I know I will miss his quick dry humor. He sure could give it as well as he took it. I will miss his smile, his sincerity, his sensitivity, his charm, but mostly his ability to make me laugh. He will be missed and know that his love for you knew no bounds. We would sit and talk about you for long periods of time and how much he loved his family. God bless you.
