Richard " Gabe" Gero was not only my Dad, but one of the most amazing human beings I have ever met. The joy he brought to everyone every single day is what I will miss the most. To know my Dad was to truly love him. I'm proud to be his daughter and will love and miss him beyond words. I know that we will see each other again one day Daddy.
