So very sorry for your loss but God has welcomed Gerald home. He was a great friend, and he served the Lord with true convictions. Gerald was a Godly role model for our young men and he never forgot to have bubble gum to hand out to our children at church.

Prayers for Lori and all the family..

I was saddened to learn of Gerald's passing. We grew up together in the Landsburg - Bethel Church area, cropped tobacco, played high school basketball and baseball together. He will certainly be missed by his friends and family.
