Sherri and Jerry have been together since the beginning of time. Jerry was always quiet but, he told me...Don't cry for me, I will be okay. Heaven is my home now, and this is where I'll stay. Don't cry for me, I'm where I belong. I want you to be happy and try to stay strong. Don't cry for me, It was just my time. But I will see you someday on the other side. Don't cry for me, I am not alone. The angels are with me to welcome me home. Don't cry for me, for I have no fear. All my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears. Don't cry for me, this is not the end. I'll be waiting here for you, when we meet again. Smile.

PREMIUM FRUIT AND GOURMET BASKET was sent by Diana, Walter, Wes, Aaron and Lucas' families. fragile, sudden, broken, the wake of such a loss, we are haunted by things we don't, and may never understand. Yet the solace we seek may not come from answers. So we look for comfort in the belief of love's everlasting connection. May that love lift you and hold you close, and give you peace.
