Gimp heal selection tool

I am trying to use the heal selection tool to eliminate text from a graphic. Unfortunately, the credits at the bottom of the tombstone are too close together. There are not enough pixels available to achieve a nice result. I've tried using the "heal selection" tool around each individual word. The end result is very poor.

Are there other methods that I could use to achieve the desired result. I've tried cloning, healing, dodging and burning. The results aren't that much better.

Thanks

I do not think there is much choice. I prefer a plain clone tool + fuzzy brush and a bit of artistic license. A little bit of smudge tool sometimes helps. A couple of minutes of work for screenshot.
