I worked with Gerald at school. He was always so lively, upbeat, helpful to us in the kitchen and very friendly!I remember how on Grandparents day every year he would sit at lunch with some of the little ones to help represent their grandparents if they couldn’t attend. The fact he did that always touched me and the children loved it. He was a good man!! My condolences to all his family!!
