I only have known Gerald seems like a short time although my Aunt Mae was married to him for 20 years. The time I was around him he was very kind.
My condolences to Aunt Mae and her family.

I will always remember my uncle Gerald. Many nights were spent under his roof, playing in his yard and eating food at his table that he grew in his garden. Every time I smell roasting peanuts I think of him. He will be missed.
