    From Sue, Lostwithiel, Cornwall, England

    So sorry to hear of Gerald’s passing. Unfortunately, the only time we got to meet, was my first trip with my Mom, Joan, Gerald’s Cornish Cousin in September 1995, a visit we never forgot. Sadly my Mom passed away in Nov 2007, but I know she would wish me to convey our deepest sympathy to Sherry and all of Gerald’s family.
    God bless and may he rest in peace.

  2. Bruce & Donna Parnall & families says:

    Take care and all our Love
