    My Dad & I were so very sad to hear that Gerry passed away. My Dad and Stepmother, Darlene Spahr were great friends at church for many many years. Your Mom & Dad were wonderful to my Dad (Ken) when my stepmother passed away. Dad fell Nov. 14, 2018 and fractured the L1 vertebrae in his back. Gerry was right there making sure church new everything going on with him and set up church visits at home while recovering. Dad is still recovering from his fall. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! Gerry was just so compassionate and “sweet”. Take care. Ken & Vicki
