May your loss be comforted by GOD'S grace. My late father, Bob Sharpe, often spoke of Gerald as a fine man and it goes without saying "We Sharpes truly enjoyed his sausage!!" I could always buy many many packages to transport back to where we were living at the time, either Augusta or N.C. His talents were enjoyed by many!! Our prayers are with your family.

So sorry for our loss, my husband Harold always loved Gerald and I enjoyed seeing him each time I came for sausage, he was a true honest person, always had a smile to welcome you. As your days ahead will be lonely, know that God gives us strength to push ahead. I still miss Harold so much even after 7 years, but can't wait to be reunited again some day. My prayers are with you and the family.

Gerald was a very strong, jovial person. I talked to him several times on the phone and only meet him once in person. Thought he was a great man when I finally meet him. He will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of sorrow. Carol Deaton with Deaton Mechanial, Athens, Ga
