    My heart hurts, but I know that Gerald is free from all pain, He has a new body and is rejoicing around the throne with our Lord and Savior. We will see him again, probably much sooner than we realize. Gerald was a very loving and caring person. I know that his crown will have many jewels. Praying for God to comfort our hearts as they are breaking. He can comfort like no other! There just are no words that anyone can speak, but Jesus… He is the one that we can lean on!
