In Loving Memory of
Abigail Elizabeth Bushe
June 10, 1998 - June 13, 1998

WE believe God has given Abigail to us, the reasons are not clear why? Best for us to know that he had given us this special gift...a loan from God.

God's Loan

For a little while I will lend you a child,
A child of mine so sweet,
For you to have just while she's here,
And to know she's mine to keep,

She'll bring her charms to gladden you,
And should her stay be brief,
You'll have these precious memories,
>From me to you to keep,

I cannot promise she will stay,
Since all from earth return,
For there are lessons taught down there,
For all of us to learn,

Now will you give her all your love,
For I have selected you,
Nor hate me when I come to call,
To take her home with me,

It seems to me I've heard them say,
Dear Lord "thy will be done",
For all the joys a child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run,

We've sheltered her with tenderness,
We have loved her, while we may,
And for all the happiness we have known,
Forever grateful stay.

And now that the angels have called for her,
Much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand.
