Gerald has been a great friend for the better part of 45 years. We worked at Dupont and also completed hundreds of projects away from work for ourself and others. He was always ready to help any friend. I admired his integrity and his word, he never failed to honor his word and always a stickler for not just being on time..but being early on time.
Thoreau had a quote: Be true to your work,your word and your
friend. Which Gerald lived by.
Rest in peace my old friend. To the family I wish you healing and peace.
I am so sorry to hear this. Praying for you.
Gerald was a good friend in school and always friendly . Prayers for his family and RIP for Gerald.
