So very sorry for your loss. Mr. Gerald was a fine man and will be missed.
I wanted to share two stories that come to mind...1) I was trying to load a cast iron bathtub into my truck and I couldn't do it. Suddenly, the bathtub got a lot lighter. At 75+ years old Mr. Gerald appeared out of no where and helped me load it. 2) I broke and tried to fix my aerator. I had two other people try and fix it. I finally asked Mr Gerald to take a look. Years later, I still can't break it. Of course, Mr. Gerald wouldn't accept any money.
