Gerald was a dear friend that I will miss so very much. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. I am thankful to have known him and called him "friend." I know that he is having a great reunion in Heaven with all those who were anxiously awaiting his arrival. But, here on earth he will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Judean, you and your family are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless and keep you all in the palm of His hands.
