    My dearest Gerald you were the ultimate servant. You gave your life to the Lord, you valiantly served in the U,S. Army and you married a woman with three kids (which included my sometimes-sassy self) and loved us as though we were your own and you never referred to us or made us feel as though we were your "step children," you proudly called us "your kids" and you loved us, your grandchildren and your great grandchildren to the day you were called home. I will miss your quick wit, your sharp mind and your no-nonsense approach to life and circumstances. It took me many years to discover that a Dad does not have to be biological but a man like you who is willing to walk in that role and continue loving and nurturing his kids until you close your eyes for the final time. You fought to stay with us but God needed you to serve one more time as His Angel. I love you and I miss you. RIH.

    GERALD LOVED PEOPLE AND LIFE TO THE FULLNESS. HE WAS A HELP TO MOM IN RAISING HIS SIBLINGS. WE FOLLOWED HIS INSTRUCTIONS. I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY HEART AND MIND FOREVER. YOUR DEAR SIBLINGS ARE GRACIOUS FOR YOU GIVING US WISE ADVICE. GERALD YOU WERE A DEACON IN THE CHURCH. I BELIEVE THAT YOU ACCEPTED CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR. I PRAY THAT WE ALL MEET AGAIN IN HEAVEN. GLORY HALLEUJAH, PRAISES TO OUR AWESOME GOD. I LOVE YOU! THANKS FOR BEING JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY. OH, HOW I WILL MISS YOU. YOU BECAME STAFF SERGEANT IN THE MILITARY. GOD SPARED YOUR LIFE DURING COMBAT IN THE VIETNAM WAR. ONE DAY WE WILL ALL BE TOGETHER IN GOD'S ARMY. YOU WERE A STRONG LITTLE FIGHTING MAN WANTING TO DO EVERYTHING YOURSELF WITHOUT HELP. YOU WERE A GOOD FATHER AND LEADER. NOW THERE IS NO MORE PAIN! NO MORE STRESS! NO MORE STRUGGLING. GOD HAS PREPARED A PLACE FOR YOU. HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU. IN CONCLUSION, THANKS FOR BEING A SHINING EXAMPLE. YOU ALWAYS DRESSED NICELY WHEN YOU WERE IN PUBLIC. YOU TAUGHT US TO ALSO LOOK NICE WHEN OUT IN THE PUBLIC. YOU ENJOYED TAKING PICTURE, SNAPSHOTS THAT BLESSED OTHERS AND WE WILL HAVE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME. YOU WERE SO SMART AND ORGANIZED. LIFE HAS A WAY OF MAKING CHANGES FOR US THAT WE DO NOT EXPECT. WHEN YOU GOT SICK YOU WERE UNABLE TO DO A LOT OF THINGS THAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY DO. THAT WAS TO BE EXPECTED, BUT THROUGH IT ALL, YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE UNTIL GOD CALLED YOUR NAME. I LOVE YOU AND YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN MY HEART. KAREN

    Gerald, I'm sadden that I did not get to see you before your transition, I made it to Miami a few hours late. I will miss the talks, your laugh, and the smile that i could envision over the phone. You were there for me at a time in my life when i needed you. Your example encourage me to complete a career in the military! Thank you for your example and for being the big brother you were to me. I love you forever and will miss you dearly. Pam

    Rest in Peace Gerald. I will miss you very much. You were not just a Stepfather, because that title seems to cheapen what you really were to me. You were my friend and all that a "father" would be. I will miss your "off" humor (albeit still funny) and your kindness. You were so strong right to the end. God has called you home Soldier. As you salute Him in paradise, say hello to Mom for me. I love you, and I can hear you saying "love you Doll". You are now free from it all...
