Name: Jan Stevens
Message: Godís Garden God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He wrapped his arms around you And lifted you to rest. Godís garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. God saw your road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, ĎPeace be thineí. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didnít go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home.
