As one day became the next,
And then the night became nights.
We watched you slip away.
Knowing how badly we would miss you.
We swallowed hard and choked back the tears
And told you it was ok
Ok for you to go be with God.
To be with family that had gone before,
To go and be at peace in the most beautiful place.
We will remember you here.
We will tell stories so the little ones will know.
You were strong.
You were beautiful.
You were smart.
You loved us all with no limits.
And now you have no limits.
Jerry was a treasure to both us and our ministry at Immanuel Baptist Church in Monahans, TX. Memories of her will be as precious to us as the Lord said her death was to Him since she was one of His saints (Psalm 116:15)
