    DOUGLAS (Mark) God looked around his garden and he found an empty space and then he look down upon the Earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest, Gods garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on Earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered ''Peace be thine''. It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone, for part of me went with you, the day God called you home. Until we meet again my darling husband, each day will bring memories of our special time together. Your loving wife Debra. Sleep peacefully. XXX read more
