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

My dear Sister, Jerry...

Nine years ago today
Your spirit flew away
Our hearts are broken, still
But, love will always fill
Death’s vacuum and its void
With memories enjoyed
Until that faithful dawning
When joy erases mourning.

We’ll see you on that day
Our tears all wiped away
Returned to health and whole
For God is in control
We’ll laugh and dance and sing
All praises to our King
So, rest until He wakes you
Dear Sis, we celebrate you.

Love from Tony, Lily and me,
Fran

MY SISTER, MY FOREVER ANGEL! AS YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR IN A LONG TIME THAT I FELT STRONG ENOUGH TO MAKE A POST HERE (I don't do well in what I call a "sad" zone)!
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO!! YOU ARE FOREVER CARRIED & CRADLED IN MY HEART! YOUR SIBLINGS ARE BLESSED AND REPRESENTING YOU WELL AS YOU ALREADY KNOW BECAUSE YOU RESIDE IN US! "THE AUNTIE'S" ARE "THE AUNTIES" ONLY BECAUSE OF "YOU"! I'M SO GLAD AND PROUD TO BE ONE OF THE MAGNIFICENT THREE (FABULOUS AUNTIES)! YOUR BABIES AS YOU ALREADY KNOW BECAUSE YOU REST IN THEM ARE SUCH BEAUTIFUL BLESSINGS - THEY ALONG WITH THEIR BABIES MAKE ME SMILE WITH JUST A THOUGHT OF THEM BECAUSE I SEE YOU ALL OVER THEM! TO ME YOU ARE NEVER GONE - BECAUSE YOU'RE EVERYWHERE I AM! LASTLY MY ANGEL, CAN YOU PLEEEEEASE COMMAND THE MOSQUITOS THAT'S BEEN CHEWING ON MY SKIN TO "TAKE A CHILL PILL AND BE STILL"?

FOREVER LOVE ALWAYS - YOU ARE MY BIGGER THAN LIFE FOREVER SISTER!

And that daughter of yours is truly a mini you, she is stunning and so funny. And that handsome Tiger is as sweet as can be , truly a wonderful human..The grandkids are simply EVERYTHING you could ask for. I love you Jerry. Happy 72 Birthday! Kisses, hugs and lots of love.

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 September 11, 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.
