Prayers to the family. In 1954 Gerald and I worked the summer @ Old Spanish Cave in Reeds Springs as guides. He was three years older than me I was 14. I lost track of Gerald after High School. Never to meet again. I am now 82 and live in Foley Alabama. He was a great guy. And will be missed.

I will miss our talks and his quiet friendly smile. Always the gentleman and someone I admired. I will miss him.
