“God saw you getting weary, so he did what he thought best. He came and stood beside you, and whispered, “ come and rest”. You wished no one a fond farewell, or even said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. When God called you to come rest, you did not go alone. For part of us went with you the day God took you home.”
