My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace

A joy forever new

    Although your work on earth is done Your life in heaven has just begun. Your struggles here were hard and long But they're over now, you're finally home. Life wasn't easy, by choice or fate A decision made, sometimes too late. A fight to the finish, always strong Rest easy Gerald, you're finally home.

    To Gerald's friends and family, I extend my condolences. It's not easy to part with a loved one. Therefore, you can trust our Heavenly Father to comfort you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1: 3,4) Soon, the time will come when death will no longer separate us from our loved ones. (Revelation 21:4) Until that time, continue to cherish the fond memories of your loved one.
