18 March 2020

Gerald and I first met when we both worked as sales associates and Realtors for the Brokerage of James D. Owens. Gerald became a Broker/Associate. Throughout the 11 years I worked at the James D. Owens Real Estate office I found Gerald to be a kind person and wonderful source of real estate knowledge. He will be missed.
RIP Gerald.
