Cecilia’s tribute was beautifully written in her honor by her niece.

God’s Garden

God looked around

His garden

And he found an

empty place,

He then looked down upon this 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 be thine.”

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.
