COME TO ME God saw you getting tired And a cure was not meant to be So He put His arms around you And whispered, "COME TO ME." With tearful eyes we watched you As you slowly slipped away And though we loved you dearly We couldn't make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating Your tired hands put to rest God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Love Always, Your Wife, Nancy Hendricks Your Children, Michael, Glenn, and Bridget
