Gerald was a highly regarded member of our graduating class. From first grade we were a close-knit group who respected and loved one another. We did not know that Gerald was so sick as he was always a quiet reserved person. We feel a real void in our circle. Also we would like to send a memorial contribution in his memory to any organization the family would deem appropriate. We share your loss.

God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Thus, no one better than him, understands the depth of your pain and can help you cope with your disquieting thoughts. (Psalm 34:18; 37:29; John 5:28, 29) May you get the strength and inner peace you need in the coming days. With all my sympathy.
