Though I didn’t know Gerald he was my great uncle my grandma Dorothy brother. I grieve for my family’s loss and send love and sympathy. Gods peace be with you.
Your Dad was a fine man, enjoyed visiting with him several times over the past few years along with his brother Doss who shares my name as his middle name. We loved Great Uncle Alvin and Great Aunt Ruby. Visited them several times over the years and I gave Uncle Alvin and Aunt Ruby one of the metal toys I made for family members and special people in my life. Peace and Love to the family. We sure thought alot of those two boys. Lonnie Freeman son of Doice and Beatrice Holland Freeman
We are very sorry to hear about Gerald. All of the family members are in our thoughts and prayers.
