  3. God walked around his garden ,
    And found a special place.
    He looked down upon the earth,
    And found a friendly face.
    He put his arms around you,
    And took you home to rest.
    His garden must be beautiful,
    For he only takes the best.
    Deepest sympathy to John and family.
    We will miss Shirley’ s visits.
