Aaron, Gina and Joyce,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during the passing of Gerald, we have fond memories of the time he worked with Jay. He told us recently he enjoyed building truck tops more than anything that he had ever done. When he was living at Myrtle Beach he helped Jay remodel a bathroom and the two of them had a good time doing it. He was very good at building anything. So glad that he came by and visited with us after he had gone to the VA about 4 weeks ago.
