Revelations 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all the tears. there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for former things are passed away." The angels rejoiced as James Jay Gemberling was called home on Monday, December 29, 2014 in Abilene. A visitation will be held today, Wednesday, December 31, 2014 from 8:00a.m. - 5:00p.m. and also on Friday, January 2, 2015 from 8:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. at Elliott-Hamil Funeral Home, 542 Hickory St., Abilene.

Jay was born on October 14, 1985 in Abilene, TX to James G. and Mary Gemberling. He was met in Heaven by his paternal grandfather, James M. Gemberling, and his maternal grandfather, Franklin Horton. Left to cherish his memory are his parents; his brother, Eric Gemberling; his daughter, Shaela Gemberling; his wife, Reagan Gemberling; grandmothers, Ann-a-vonne Gemberling, and Rosemary Horton; aunts and uncles, Curt & Kathy Gemberling, Jeffrey Gemberling, and Jimbob & Sylvia Presswood; numerous cousins; and many precious friends.
