I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. II Timothy 4: 7-8

To all my loved ones that I am leaving behind. Don’t worry about me because my Heavenly Father has set me free. Please be forever grateful and thankful for the happiness we’ve shared. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. My life’s been full and I’ve savored much. This place was never meant to be a permanent home for any of us. Through all the pain and heartaches, give praises and honor to my Father for my fifty-eight years on earth. Remember my amazing radiant smile and my love for all of my family and friends.

Ophelia Lillian Gibson was born on August 9, 1964, to Mary Louis Rogers and Thomas Bell in Brunswick, Georgia. She received her formal education at Glynn Academy School in Brunswick, Georgia.
