Gerald Guy Case

February 11, 1933 - February 16, 2005


As the morning of Feb 16th, came upon us, his family watched Jerry leave. Knowing that God had decided it was time to stop his pain and reunite him with his family waiting for him on the other side.  Sadness crept over us when we heard the news, but a sigh of relief as his pain is gone. He now can laugh and whistle at the girls.

In Loving Memory of

God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, "Come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away,
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
