Gerald, or as I would call him “Papa”, was my best friend. We spent a lot of time with each other but somehow it still doesn’t seem like it was enough. I loved him with all of my heart, and I am so grateful that he was my grandfather and was by my side for as long as he was. I will always be thinking about him and all of the memories we have together. It was a privilege to be in his presence and I will always be thinking about you everyday. I love and miss you so much. I miss our talks we would have. -Love, your girl Nicole. Thank you for everything, my husband, our father, and grandfather. Love you always. Cremation has taken place. Due to COVID-19 restrictions a service will be held at a later date. Donations in his memory may be made to the Aberdeen Palliative Care Society.
