Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family.......we so loved the trips that Gerald and Arlene made to Kansas to visit my parents Leo and Nadine Greenwood. My folks had so many enjoyable times with them and always looked forward to their coming. It always seemed like Gerald was my dad"s brother instead of cousin. Living right here, of course we were able to get in on all the fun with them. Thinking of you, Chuck & Gayla (Greenwood) Fisher, Brandon Fisher & family and Tiffany (Fisher) Peters & family.

I only met him once in my life, but he had more class than anyone I have ever known.
