Very sorry to hear about the passing of Gerald.  My dad, Delmer Siemens, attended the same school, lived in the same area and he remembers cutting Geralds hair at times.  Our thoughts and prayers are with your family in your loss.  Delmer Siemens and daughter, Linda Ratcliff

Aunt Ray Dell, Kathy, Linda and all the family. I love you all.
What a comfort it is to know that Uncle Gerald is a wonderful man of God and is in the arms of Jesus right now. Our separation from him is made bearable because we know it isn't forever.
