    I've known Gerald almost all of my life. Vicki and I were classmates for 12 years of school, and his brother Bill was my best man in my wedding. I always felt a special connection to Gerald (we shared the same name) and I remember his ever so respectful presence at each of my family member's passing. He would pay his respects and remain for hours quietly sitting in back. I tried calling and chatting with him later, but always seem to miss him. He had a quiet and dignified demeanor that I admired. He will be missed.
