I will never forget my friend Gerri, father of my best friend Susan. He was so very precise in all aspects of his life. He had a quirky sense of humor and always made me laugh and smile. Kind, honest and devoted to his family and friends. I will miss him dearly and pray for his family. May he eternally Rest In Peace
