Our Sincere Condolences
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family in their time of sorrow. He will be greatly missed but now has no pain and is with the Lord.
Prayers and hugs for all of you in your time of sadness. He is well now.
Alice I’m so sorry for your loss. You always deserved the best and when you married Gerald you got it. When I would run into you I could see the love the both of you had. It’s going to be a hard road ahead but the family support you have is amazing. Your family has always had that in them. You’re in my prayers and always in my heart ❤️
