How sad I am to read of Cousin Gerald's death. We were looking forward to spending time together this upcoming summer. I had promised to drive him again to Rodman to visit his childhood home. Smart and gentle, he was hardworking soul.

I will miss Gerald's visits and stories. He would stop and chat in front of Sacred Heart Church when I was working in the garden and he was on his lunch walk. He was a very sweet man and I enjoyed visiting with him. My condolences to the family.
