God saw that she was getting tired, A cure was not to be.

So he put His arms around her and whispered, ”Come with Me.”

With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer and saw you fade away.

Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes ”the best”.


     Catherine Frances Wright, was born to the late George Rufus Moore and Mary Frances Moore on Monday, December 12, 1955 in Greensville County, Virginia.
