His Journey Has Just Begun

Don’t think of him as gone away – his journey’s just begun,

Life holds so many facets, - this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting from the sorrow and tears,

In a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days ad years.

Think how he must be wishing that we could know today,

How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

Think of him as living in our hearts of those he touched,

For nothing loved is never lost; and he was loved so much.


The family of the late Ernest Garfield Green would like to express our deepest appreciation for all the expression of kindness and love. Your comforting words, inspirational messages, visits, phone calls  and prayers have all made this time of grief easier to bear. We would especially like to thank the nurses and staff of Gadsden Regional Medical Center MICU and Apostle Maurice Wright and the United Christian Church. My GOD bless each of you is our prayer.
