ED is in wED 31 July 2014: Takes the Best


God knows you’re someone special
And Earth was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, “Come with me”

With tearful eyes we watched you,
Watched you pass away.
Although we love you deeply,
We could not make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped beating;
Hard-working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He always takes the best.

(adapted from the funeral sheet of Beryl Joan Elfick, mother of Rob and Chris who passed away on 27 June 2014 after a brave fight against cancer:

God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be. )

  1. Ed was God’s own the ho, le time. Know of.my love for the time we had in Sulphur and in the Rocky Mountains and of my empathy with you as you circle to support each other in love and sorrow, yes and celebration for a beautiful and brilliant life. I’m thankful for a.few moments shared in Facebook a few days past. We . . . You and I . . .we know of his courage and his love for life snd family and friends around the world. Know also of my prayers for your awareness of that priesence with you of the living God, author of life and healing. Amen to that prayer rhat was Ed’s life…… – – – – – Leland Griffin, Muskogee, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
