Elizabeth’s family wishes to share this verse, which has brought them much comfort:
God saw you were 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.
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.
Private services will be held at the convenience of the family.
