|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
|I always think of a most generous, professional, and caring person when I think of Gerald. My family were very fortunate to have him as our insurance agent and friend for many years. He always looked out for us like family and I will always appreciate him sitting both my sons down to counsel them before they began driving. May God cover this family with His tender and loving mercies as they say their earthly goodbyes to Gerald. I know he has begun a wonderful heavenly journey.|
|I am so sorry for your loss, I know he will be
greatly missed. Our lord now has him and we will
all get together again one day in God's house,
what a glorious day that will be!|
