Gerson was one of the "Nicest" people I've ever meet. This is a lost of a wonderful person. Him and his wife Mary were so special. He was a fair person and went overboard in the things he done. He will be missed. I am very heart broken over this. RIP my friend

Thanks to you and your wife for opening your home to me as your son's friend in high school and college. Thanks for allowing me to go with your family to Houston and Panama City. I won't ever forget you or Mrs. Robinson. Rest in peace, your knucklehead.
