    God’s Garden
    God looked around his garden
    And found an empty place,
    He 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 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 bethine’.
    It broke our hearts to lose you
    But you didn’t go alone,
    For part of us went with you
    The day God called you home.

    We are so sorry to hear about Martha, we just found out today 4/25/13. She was so special to us, I have heard my mom (Reneca) and grandma (Avenell) tell us many stories about growing up with Martha. Avenell and mom was so excited that we finally had gotten in contact with her and Peggy after many years of trying to locate them. And especially they all came to visit and Martha got to stay a couple of weeks with Avenell. Please accept our condolences and apologies for not founding out sooner. We loved Martha, I loved talking to her on the computer too. Bless her heart, she will be missed.. Love to all, Dee Dee & her family in KY.
