CHAULK, Gerald Thomas
CHAULK - In loving memory of a dear husband and father, Gerald Thomas, who passed away February 9, 1998.
How do you write on paper the feelings you have inside,
Of the emptiness and heartache when the one you love has died.
You gave us many things in life, treasures great and small,
But most of all you gave us love, the greatest gift of all.
We stood beside your bedside, our hearts were crushed and sore,
We tended you with loving care till we could do no more.
Though it broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.
You live with us in memory still, not just today, but always will.
Always loved and never forgotten, by wife Phyllis and daughter Paula Geraldine.
