Gerald had a winning personality and a strong commitment to excellence. His mentorship, companionship, and sense of humor will be sorely missed. Thanks for all the good times, advise and laughs. We'll deeply miss you.

I was shocked to learn of Gerry's death today when I read the Northwestern Univ. magazine. Gerry was a especially kind and good friend so many years ago in Evanston. My prayers go out to all of his family. He was truly one of the nicest people I have known. God must have needed another angel.

Joan & Family I know Roger probably expressed this to you when he saw you at the memorial but Gerry was one of the most influential people in his life. Roger always admired Gerry both as a mentor and as a friend. He appreciated what a good person he was. How many times since those Arthur Anderson days in the 1970s he has reminded me how much he admired Gerry and how if it hadn't been for him Roger's career path would have been so different. He was truly shaken when he learned of Gerry's death and I am so thankful he was able to come to Atlanta. Sincerely, Lawnie Conlon Minneapolis

Mrs. Joan and Kebby - I was literally stunned today when I heard about Gerry. I love the picture you chose to share, as his smile is just as I remember him. I know how special he was to everyone - most importantly his family. My thoughts are with you all.

"Neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

While Gerry delights in His presence, may God grant you peace and comfort during this time of mourning.

Dear Joan and Family, I was shocked and saddened to learn of Gerry's passing. I will always have very fond memories of both him and you and all the times we spent together when I worked with George Steiner at Scientific-Atlanta. Sorry I cannot be there with you today. Know that you are all in my prayers and may God give you the strength to see you through the days, weeks and months ahead. You all will be in my prayers.
