************* “The First Ten Years”
to Laurie for their 10th anniversary, July 16, 2010 Let me tell you about our first ten years.
They were not without their share of tears
But they had many joys too
Because God has always let us through
Our struggles and trials
Down life’s many aisles. She has been all that I need and much more
Her love has always been great
She always seems to have energy for
Her service is rarely late
She has amazing love in store
Her love makes me glad she’s my mate. Happy Ten Anniversary! Love, Gerry

  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with Laurie and the family during their time of loss. Gerry will be greatly missed by all who knew him. What an inspiration he was. Psm 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”

  2. Our family has truly suffered a loss – Gerry was a wonderful brother, husband, uncle, step-father, and friend. I remember many fun nights playing board games when Uncle Gerry would come down to Florida to visit. I wish I could be there for the service today. My sincerest condolences to Laurie, my dad, Uncle Mel, and the rest of the family.

  3. Uncle Gerry will be missed by his family and friends. My thoughts are with Laurie, Dad, Uncle Mel, and his church family during this time.

    My fondest memory of Gerry was when he and I participated in a “Road Rally” in Central Florida in 1994. The goal was to complete a driving course through Central Florida in the exact amount of time allowed not too fast or slow, while obeying speed limits. Each driver was to be accompanied by a blind passenger, with the course directions in Braille. Therefore, each pair had to rely on each other to complete the course. We even won a small trophy. May the memorial service tonight inspire and comfort all who attend.

    Gerry was my brother-in-law and I know that growing up with him made my husband, Ron, a more sensitive person and a better parent. Gerry was amazing in his ability to hold onto his faith and maintain a positive attitude despite the incredible adversities he faced throughout his life. We will all miss him.
