Comments about Gero Lorna
The sound of laughter rings in my ears
as I sit and think about you.
We never spent much time together,
but my love for you was true.
Others recognized you
as being a wonderful man.
Kind, generous and loving
always willing to lend a had.
My eyes fill with tears
as I picture you handsome face.
Knowing you are now gone
to the heavenly place.
Now your life has ended
a new one will begin.
I say good-bye for now dear uncle
for I know I will see you again.
You're standing there in front of
my classroom window.
I remember seeing you two weeks
ago, full of beautifully colored leaves.
And today you're almost
naked with only a few barely
hanging on. The trees beside you are
swaying in the wind, but you stand firm
