WHITE PEDESTAL ARRANGEMENT was sent by Lidia Bento .

God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to me". Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. Your precious heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. I shall always remember you and pray to you each day, Love always Your Sister Lidia Bento and Family

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, "Come to me".
You didn't deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

"Auntie", your journey in this life is now done. Your work is over, its time to be with my uncle and our family and friends gone before us. My parents will miss you so much, the conversations you had with them; they are devastated that you are now gone. RIP Tia Estrela, love always from your Canadian "Niece"

Hilda and husband Henry
