Ernest Gerald Edwards

October 9, 1930 ~ July 4, 2020 (age 89)

Death notice

Sometime at Eve when the tide is low

I shall Slip my moorings and sail away

With no response to a friendly hail

In the silent hush of the twilight pale

When the night stoops down to embrace the day

And the voices call in the water’s flow

A few who watched me wail away

Will miss my craft from busy bay

Some friendly barques were anchored near

Some loving souls my heart held dear

In silent sorrow will drop a tear

But I shall have peacefully furled my sail

In mooring sheltered from the storm and gale

And greeted friends who had sailed before

O’er the Unknown Sea

To the Unknown Shore


Love you dad.
