Gods Garden Must Be Beautiful
God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around Uncle Sonny and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best. He saw the roads were getting rough; the hills were hard to climb. He closed your weeping eyes and whispered "Peace Be Thine" it broke our hearts to lose you, Uncle Sonny, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you the day God called you home. Your loving nieces and nephews, Katina (William II) Knox, Keith Martin, Tamara Martin, Tabbetha Martin and Chris Daniel
