Gerald G. Hix

have a memory or condolence to add?

Ted Ferguson

April 22, 2018

I was a life long friend with Gerald. Our Church, Bethel Temple, was first and then our friendship second and it grew over the years. For many years Gerald, Perry and myself would get together after Church on Sunday at one of our homes. We played football, baseball and swung on ropes across a small bed of water under railroad tracks nearly every Sunday with many other Bethel Temple friends. We enjoyed Sunday dinner with either the Hix or Ferguson families and loved every minute of it. I don't think that we ever had arguments or conflicts during all of those many years. We just loved each other as God loved us. In other words, our love was real. I called Gerald's parents, Bro. Hix and Sister Hix. I considered Sister Hix as my second Mother. I considered Gerald as my Brother. I loved him and he loved me and that lasted until Gerald took his last breath. I have truly lost a longtime personal friend, but I have no doubt in my mind that Gerald is in Heaven with Perry, Jimmy, Clifton and they are listening to every word they hear from Bro. and Sister Hix. I could write a book on our experiences, but I'll stop here and just say again, I love you Gerald Hix and you will be missed.
