I so wish I could have been with all of you today because I know how important family support is. I know you mourned, but hope you also had a chance to dust off happy memories of who Gerald was. I still have the boxed set of paperbacks of the Lord of the Rings series he gave because I liked to read. Love from Houston.

Debbie, I am so saddened to hear that Gerald has passed away. He was such a kind, sweet, and generous person. My heart aches for you and your family. We will be lifting you up in prayer during this difficult time. I just can not imagine what you are going through, so we will continue to pray for you and your children, that God will be with you through all the difficult days of adjustment to come. May you have the peace of God and all your wonderful memories to carry you through.
