Warnings- not been beta and maybe a tissue warning.

I Only Take The Best.

Amy and Rory were dropped off; somewhere he really didn't bother to know about. He'd pick them up later. He slipped through the open doors of the church and looked around. One step down and his eyes became wet, two steps down and they started to fall, three steps down and his body shook, four steps down and a sob escapes his lips, five steps down and in front of the coffin,

Five steps down and his hearts break.

She looks like an angel, she always was, his Sarah-Jane.

He can't take his eyes away from her so he does what he does best.

"Sarah-Jane, the girl who waited a lifetime, Amy's got nothing on you" he forces a smile but it comes more like a grimace.

"Remember the school? You and Rose fought but you became friends, of course the laughing at my expense. Rose told me later that night I do not stroke the TARDIS" he let out a sob "Well sometimes I do"

"You had your son, brilliant boy Luke is. You deserved him" he looked over to Luke, he was crying while talking with a few people.

"All the adventures we had, I'll never forget them. I'm sorry I made you wait; I seem to do that a lot. Remember when we first met, you were pretending to be your aunt and all the adventures we had. You started your own investigation team"

"I told Rose once that I only take the best and you Sarah-Jane were defiantly one of the best" he reach down and placed a kiss to her forehead, wiping away a stray tear that had fallen.

He looked around before stepping back and turning around, walking out of the church as the priest started to speak.

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 hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best

"He's not the only one" The Doctor whispered

RIP Elisabeth Sladen,

You were loved and you'll be missed
