Never say goodbye, Never forgotten .God saw that she was getting tired, and a cure was not meant to be, so he put his arms around her and whispered "come to me" with tearful eyes we watched her suffer. And watched her fade away, although we loved her dearly we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, and a warm loving heart to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us that he only takes the best. R I P .
