Sorry to the family of Gerald for their loss. Gerald can RIP now. Lots of memory’s Lance has of Gerald. He was one tough cookie! RIP Gerald! Will always be remembered.
So sorrow to hear about your dad, grandfather’s passing
My condolence to the Green family for your loss. Gerry was much older than me, but, I do remember a little bit about him. The Green clan was a bunch of people who could really have a good time. I will always remember my many trips ” to the farm”. Especially the day Carmen kicked the outhouse door open while I was “sitting”…..she may even have taken the Monkey Wards catalog before I could use it! My parents Jim and Jean thought a great deal of the Greens. So sorry for your loss, but, very thankful for all the memories. In fact, I’m drinking a Pepsi in Ginny’s honor at this time. Jerry Flack
Kelly, I’m thinking of you and your entire family at this sad time. Sorry for your loss.
