Celebrating the life of Gerard Jones
Our beautiful Gerard has passed away gently, surrounded by love and held by his family. We feel that he is resting peacefully and satisfied that he did everything he wanted to and tried so hard to live longer.
Gerard’s life will be celebrated at a Memorial on Tuesday 15th February 2022 at 11.00am to be held at MacKillop Family Services, 237 Cecil St, South Melbourne. The ceremony will be followed by a light lunch.
We ask that all those who are attending in person wear a mask when not eating or drinking. There will be well-ventilated indoor and outdoor seating options to help keep everyone protected. Please understand that all attendees must be fully vaccinated to attend the Memorial. This is for legal requirements and also to protect the vulnerable members of our community.
For those who are unable to attend in person, the Memorial service will also be live streamed by Belinda Jane Video and streaming will commence 15 minutes before the scheduled start. The link is bit.ly/GerardJonesMemorial.
Please forward this link to all those who would like to join the ceremony online.
Thank you for all the support, the heartfelt tributes and the expressions of love. These are consoling and carrying us in this most difficult part of our lives, and will form part of the Memorial.
Please do not send flowers. You will think of some other special way to honour him; making a donation, writing a song, planting a tree, going camping, or enjoying a good meal, a glass of wine and sharing stories about Gerard.
A lovely way that others have memorialised their loved ones has been through a selection of their favourite songs, and as Gerard had such a love of music we felt this would be a very fitting thing to share with you all. You can access the playlist here.
Our beloved beautiful daughter died unexpectedly to leave behind treasured memories for parents Lindsay & Anne, sisters Vanessa and Nicla, Aunt to Declan, Liam, Alice, Chloe and Elizabeth. Niece to Julie, Dianne, Mark and Shane, cousin to James & Charlotte, second cousin Kathryn and grand Aunt Shirley.
As a highly accomplished singer songwriter her extensive works lives on. As an organ donor there is now new sight and extended life. Her deep spirituality and faith provide comfort to our grieving hearts.
A service to honour the life of Rachael will be held on TUESDAY 8th February 2022, at 11am at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church, 4 Henry Street, Eltham.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the St Vincent De Paul Society would be appreciated. To join the service via livestream, please use the following link – bit.ly/RachaelByrnesFuneral
