God seen the road was rough and the hills were hard to climb. He closed her loving eyes and whispered, 'Peace Be Thine'. She is in the hands of God now, where there is everlasting life. No more suffering, no more pain and no more strife.
Her unconditional and unwavering love will remain with us in our hearts, thoughts and beautiful memories.
