    Sheila, Steve and family- I am heartbroken to learn of Gerald’s passing. Of course, I remember our times in high school and particularly all the football practices and games we played for Gordon Lee. Gerald and I played next to each other on the Trojan’s line for two seasons before he graduated. In fact, for a while Leon Ray played center, Gerald played right guard and I played right tackle. Later, he, Leon and I tried our hand at golf before Leon and I found our way to Georgia Southern. I caught up with Gerald about 8 years ago and we had a great time reminiscing and catching up. I grieve his passing with you. I pray God’s peace and comfort for all your family during this difficult time. Gerald was a fine person, a true blue Gordon Lee Trojan and a wonderful friend of mine. I will miss him, but enjoy many great childhood (,Chickamauga Recreation Baseball) and Gordon Lee memories. May Gerald Rest In Peace. God Bless all of you.
