A special thank you to the nurses at the Palliative Care Unit at Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital for taking such wonderful care of our Mom.
In tears we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away
You faced your task with courage,
Your spirit did not bend.
And still you kept on fighting
Until the very end.
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
And whispered “Come to me”
So when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
Always remembered and forever missed by your family and friends
