Adan Salvador Valdes (Chava)


God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A Golden heart stopped beating,  hard working hands at rest. God broke our heart to prove to us he has only takes the best.
