The Butterfly
A poem for Jerry by Francine Bell
September 14, 2010
San Diego, California
 
It took only three weeks, and the parting too soon
That she passed from this life, from death's bitter cocoon
Now her burdens are lifted, her spirit's set free
Transcended from here to the place she should be
A place where there's peace, no more suffering or pain
It's certain our loss is eternity's gain
 
Yes, it's freedom at last for this new butterfly
But, to find life anew she knew she had to die
Resurrection will soon bring her back from her sleep
For her saviour, Lord Jesus, has promised to keep
Her soul in his care until he comes once more
To take us to join him beyond heaven’s door
 
When Christ comes again, she’ll be well, she’ll be whole
She’ll live life restored with its riches untold
Then she’ll flutter; she’ll soar and delight in her flight
Over this old world's grief, from death's darkness to light
Now, each time that I look at a sweet butterfly
I'll remember her smile and I'll try not to cry

Happy 70th, Sis. We sure wish you were here with us to celebrate it. You are sorely missed. I long for your laughter and even your tears...just you. We all love you so much, each in our own special way. That Jerry-shaped vacuum in my heart feels especially empty today. You are and will be, forever missed. Tony, The Boys, The Wubbies and I love you.

Lauren lit the candle this morning in your honor and all those who lost their life on 9/11. We all miss you and talk of you often. It seems longer than three years sis. I am just sad and don't have the words. I love you! Give Daddy, Bobby and Dee Bones a kiss for me.
Posted by Francine Bell-Mills on 10th September 2013
I miss you so much today, Sis. So much. I wish you were here. It's been 3 years already and the void is huge. Who could ever hope to fill your space, I ask you? We love you. Lots. Still heart-broken to have lost you. I miss the jokes that you and I shared; I miss the fun times. I miss confiding in you and even getting angry with you! Resurrection morning should be fun. Love you.

Fighting back tears at my desk is awful though. Been dreading this day all summer and now it's here. Mixed feeings, mostly sad though. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! Really miss you so very much. Love you til the end of time.... Shawney

You were a truly beautiful person that lit up any room you walked in. I wish I had come to CA a few years back - but I was in China for a while. I thought we could celebrate our 65th birthday this year. Instead I found out you were gone. You'll always be missed. I will always remember our days at Central Commercial and Bushwick. Love you, Linda
