Donna Sue Youngs (Beals)

God saw she was getting tired,

and a cure was not to be,

so he opened his arms and whispered,

come with me .

With tearful eyes we watched her suffer,

and slowly fade away.

Although we loved her dearly,

We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stop beating,

Caring hands to rest.

God Broke our  hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
