I was blessed to spend many holidays and birthdays with Gerald and Jeanne. He was a wonderful man. He had a good sense of humor and loved his family very much. Gerald will be missed very much.
I pray for peace for each family member. My heart aches for the loss you are feeling right now. I send my love to each of you.

I was Dad's shadow when I was a little girl. Everywhere Dad went I was right behind him. When I got older he taught me to change the oil on my car and to change a flat tire. For a school home economics summer project we put a new motor in a GMC AMX and taught me how to do some body work on it. I never got to drive it before he sold it hahaha.
My Dad will always be MY HERO! He was in Germany when the Wall went up and I was there when it came down. As I walked the streets of Coleman Barracks I thought of my Dad walking the same streets!
I will so you and Sean soon Dad keep each other company until I get there.
