Becky, Brock, Steve...I'm so sorry for your loss. Gerald was one of the kindest, most gentle men I've ever known. I believe you can find his picture in the dictionary beside "gentleman." He will be greatly missed for sure. My prayers are with you all.

Sending my sincere condolences to his family and friends. He always had a smile on his face and it was my honor to get to talk to him when he came to O'Charleys in Brentwood. He had the kindest soul. I will never forget him. RIP my friend
