I recall so fondly all the times we were together with our Redemptorist classmates. Gerald was always the gentleman and fun to be with. He served his God, family and country well, another star in our heavens. I am so sorry I am unable to be with you tomorrow. I am sending a donation in Gerald's memory to St. Vincent de Paul. Sending prayers and love. Diane
