God makes the most wonderful people

Then lovingly shows them the way

To share all their gifts and their care

To bright the world day by day

They make such a difference to others

With a visit, a card or a call,

God chooses these wonderful people

To be blessings of all.

God has given you such a generous hart.

For care about others and for spreading

Happiness. Thank you so much for being

One of His wonderful people.
