My Condolences to Gerry's family. I pray God comfort you during your terrible loss. God must have needed another Angel.

I knew Gerry all through school, from Elementary through High school. We were always in Home room together, and took many classes. I adored him! He was always the sweetest guy and such a gentleman. I can't think of a single thing negative . I know he was a neat dresser, and so handsome. I just knew Gerry would make a great family man...

The world was better with him in it, and now he will forever watch over the ones he loved. We all will see Gerry again someday, until then I was lucky to have been his friend!
