    We lift you up in prayers for comfort at the passing of Gerald and we know that he and Joan are together again singing glorious praises to God. It has been so long since we have seen any of you, but we are always mindful of our family ties that bind us together.
    Love you all,
    Jim and Cindy

    Gerald was such a good, loving husband and father during all the years I knew him as a cousin-in-law, and I recall he took good care of his mother, too, in her own golden years. I share Linda and Lanita Elaine’s grief, but take comfort in knowing he’s reunited with Joan “on the other side”, where they’ll one day see their parents again. Love, Anna Lynne
