God looked around His garden and saw an empty space,
then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful, He only 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,
as He closed your weary eyelids and whispered 'Marienne it is time'.
Through tearful eyes we watched you and saw you slip away,
and although we loved you dearly we knew you could not stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest,
God's garden is more beautiful now, because we know he took the best.
A celebration for the life of
At rest on Saturday 17th July 2010

You're dearly loved, always.
