WHEELER, Geraldine (Gerry Bell)
WHEELER, Geraldine (Gerry Bell) - On the 18th of April, the second anniversary of the passing of a devoted wife and mother, we pause to recall our memories of her and pray that God, in his mercy and compassion, will grant her eternal rest and peace in His heavenly Kingdom. We would like to think how she must be wishing, today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
Death is the Door to Life Evermore
We live a short while on Earth below,
Reluctant to die for we do not know
Just what "dark death" is all about
And so we view it with fear and doubt,
Not certain of what is around the bend
We look on death as the final end
To all that made us a mortal being
And yet there lies just beyond our seeing
A beautiful life so full and complete
That we should leave with hurrying feet
To walk with God by sacred streams
Amid beauty and peace beyond our dreams -
For all who believe in the risen Lord
Have been assured of this reward
And death for them is just "graduation"
To a higher realm of wide elevation -
For life on Earth is a transient affair,
Just a few brief years in which to prepare
For a life that is free from pain and tears
Where time is not counted by hours or years -
For death is only the method God chose
To colonize Heaven with the souls of those
Who by their apprenticeship on Earth
Proved worthy to dwell in the land of new birth -
So death is not sad...it's a time for elation,
A joyous transition...the soul's emigration
Into a place where the soul's safe and free
To life with God through eternity!
Sadly, but fondly missed by daughters Sharon, Patricia, son Stephen and wife Sheila, husband Edward (Ned) and all her grandchildren who still miss their Nanny.

ADAMS, Gloria P.
ADAMS - In loving memory of a dear wife and mother, Gloria P., who entered into Heaven, November 7, 1982.
Days go by as the years slowly pass, Pictures may fade but memories last,
Everyday I try to hold on, To things in my heart which aren't gone.
Inspiration is what you were to me, To remain strong and wise as I can be,
Having you there would mean so much, But I always remember the love we shared with every touch.
Always in our hearts, forever in our thoughts.
Forever loved and missed by husband John, son Perry, daughters Teena (Njala), Paula and grandson Tyrone.
