Also thank you to the entire staff at Orange Regional Medical Center for the excellent care they provided to our mother.
Mom, God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be; so He put His arms around you and whispered come to me; with tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away; and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay; A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest; God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Love you.
