God saw Ageda was getting tired and cure was not to be... So he put his
arm around her and whispered `Come with me'. With tearful eyes we watched
her suffer and saw her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly, we couldn't make her stay. A gold heart
stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove
to us he only takes the best.
We would like to express our most sincere appreciation to all the wonderful
people that were with us during our time of sorrow. We like to say thank
you for all the food, flowers, kindness, prayers and hope that some day
we can thank each of you personally.
