“Sovereign, Jehovah;* merciful Father, greater You are than our hearts. Lighten our burden, soften our anguish,
Give us the comfort Your spirit imparts. God, we implore You: Hear our petition. Give us Your spirit to guide us each day.”
When we are weary, weak, or discouraged, Your active force will our hearts renew. Give us the strength to soar like the
eagles; may we receive holy spirit from You.” Luke 11:13; Exodus 6:3;* Psalm 83:18;* John 14:26
Donna and Dennis Harris says
Gerry will be missed. I have fond memories of her. One of the last ones was when I went to visit her in the hospital I brought her this cross made out of glass with a place where you could put a little candle on it, so I bought those kind of candles that just light up and look like real fire flame coming from the candle. And she just smiled so big and just stared at that cross almost the whole time I was there. It was so inexpensive, but to her it was worth so much. I can remember her smiling at it and turning it towards her when the nurses would move it. I loved her dearly and think she knew that.And we would pray together everytime I would leave. I’m sad and sorry for the family, but not for Gerry, because she’ was tired and now she is smiling with happiness. And we will see her again.My prayers are with the family.
Donna and Dennis Harris says
A sunset on earth is a sunrise in heaven.

Prayers for peace during this very difficult time. Treasure the memories and love she shared and celebrate the fact that she lived a great life here on earth, you can see the happiness in her eyes and beautiful smile, and remember you will see her again in heaven!
