Died 12th January 2005

You left with words unspoken,

No time to say goodbye,

You were gone before we knew it,

And only God knows why,

We know we cannot see your face,

Your hands we cannot touch,

But we will always have your memories,

Of a brother Gerald we loved so much.

You will always be remembered by your sister Karen, brother- in - law Stephen, nephew Paul and nieces Kym and Kerry. 15 New Street, Armoy
