To My CSN Family. This is the poem that was on the back of Al'S Memory Card.

God saw you were getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
So put his arms around you
and whispered. "Come to me"

With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

In Loving Memory of Albert R. Franko.

I just wanted to share this with all of my CSN family who love, and support me from all over who could not be there with me.

Thank You All Very Much!
Kathy Franko

    You amaze me and all of us just like Kitten did, but please know he is not suffering anymore, and is in a place of comfort and no pain.

    We sometimes always ask us ourselves why did GOD take him so quick from me. Please know he did it for a reason, you were an awesome caregiver, and we still need you here so please know all your friends love you right now.

    Take care

    Thank you

    I haven't been on this site very long and did not know you and your beloved husband Al. But I have read your posts and marvelled at your strength and caring. My husband, Jim, also has stage 4. I hope I can be as strong as you are in the coming months. Thank you for your inspiration.

    Beautiful poem
    Thanks for sharing the poem, I will be sure to read it to my children if they're dad passes away. I am so deeply sorry about Al, it must have been so comforting for him to have you there with him in his last days here on earth. My husband is deteriorating quickly and I see how strong you have been and that gives me hope too that we will be o.k. even if God takes him. I will keep praying for you that your sorrow be washed away and as the days go on you'll be lifted up, higher and higher til you find those happy days again.
    Very sincerely,
    Aunti M
