I only learned of Gerry’s passing a few days ago and have been distraught ever since. I had Gerry in the infants class at Funshine when I was a teen and he was a baby. He was my absolute favorite student. The family who ran the daycare used to tease me about how much I favored him. Sometimes on my lunch break I would take him for walks just the two of us, even after he graduated to the toddler class. Once, shortly after I started working there he got sick with some terrible stomach bug which I caught from him and even still, I couldn’t wait to get back and see him again. He had the sweetest spirit and most adorable smile. I still remember the way he would fall asleep in my arms after taking a bottle and I would just rock him as long as I could. I loved that little boy so much, and thought about him often over the years, especially when I had my own sons. I always hoped one day our paths would cross again. Out of nowhere I felt the urge to search for him a few days ago and found this obituary. I am beside myself to say the least. I added some of the pictures I had of him in my scrapbooks from high school. I wish I had more and I wish I could have known him as a young man. He was so special to me. I never forgot him — I never will.

I am so grieved to hear of Gerry’s passing. We had many a chat on the drives to church through a few years. I’m sad he has been stolen from all those who loved him.
He helped me with some gardening projects that would have taken me days longer that it did him. I’m looking at a little plastic butterfly that looks like lace that he made me one year with a Christmas crafting present. He was giving. He was searching for his place in life. Sadly, this world is full of traps. I do know he had faith even though doing some wandering, but haven’t we all?
I’m very sorry to all his family, he did talk of all of you with love.
Like Rhonda said, keep your faith strong. The days are full of evil, treasure one another. We never know when those last interactions will be…make them all count. May God bless you all.

I was one of Gerry’s teachers in fifth grade, and I remember his laugh, his joy, and his beautiful smile. The world has lost some of its light. Please know how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Having lost my own son almost nine years ago, I know the depth and breadth of your grief. My only advice for making it through this most difficult time is to hold tightly to your faith. Sending sincere condolences-

He helped us put in Rob & Jess’ patio. He worked so hard and didn’t hear a complaint. Heard a lot of everything else that was going on in his head, but that was a joy. I’m sorry for your loss.
