Day 90 - Saying Goodbye

A week ago today, we had to say goodbye to Cris' dad and the boys' beloved Ovo at his funeral mass.  Ovo was a gentle man whom his grandchildren adored.  He will be greatly missed.

God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So he closed his arms around you
And whispered, "Come to me"

You didn't deserve
What you went through
So he gave you eternal rest,
God's garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.

And when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
