In Loving Memory of Guadalupe Ortiz Ochoa
“God saw she was getting tired and the cure was not to be;
So He put his arms 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 could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands to rest;
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best…”
