“God Saw You Getting Tired”
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, “Come With me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you, slowly fade away,
Although we loved dearly, we would not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
The family would like to say a special thanks to Dr. Jensen, Dr. Coetzee and the nurses of 3 North Campbell River Hospital, for their great care for Mom in her last days.
At Josie’s request there is no service. Donations in Josie’s memory may be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation or a charity of one’s choice.
