Gerald, how I wish you were still here with us! Every day I find myself thinking about things we shared, like watching funny movies and looking at the night sky for UFO'S, or the times we all went out to some secluded place in the country to watch for falling stars... Every time I look up at night I will know that you are up there waiting patiently for the rest of us.. 😢 I hope you always knew how loved you were and how missed you will be❤❤

Everyday, almost every minute...i miss my daddy. The thought of my bestest friend not being here still seems so unreal. This sweet man played a HUGE roll in my everyday life. Not just sometimes, we was literally inseparable. This sure gave me a different outlook on life and how we sometimes take each day for granted...my heart aches for one last call..or one last visit unexpectedly. But, realistically i know i wont ever get that again. Hold sooo tight to the ones you love, bc in a blink of a eye God may need them more than he thinks we do..and their gone! Momma, your my rock and i promise to cherish every moment i can with you..and for that i am blessed! Terri Gosnell Thornburg

Gerald, I'm not sure if I can find the words to say how much I am going to miss you in our life! I met you and Terri shortly after you were married, and you have been a part of my life ever since.. My heart will truly never be the same knowing you have left. I will always have the memories and for that I thank you. I love you my friend, and will miss you always.. Forever in my heart.. ❤
