I will always remember Steve calling me out in a joking way when I tried to sneak out dance class a little early. He was a special friend to me and my wife. We will always remember Steve.

I feel so honored that the family chose one of my many pictures of Gerald and this one in particular. It was taken February 27, 2017 at the Order of Doves Ball. We of course had a great time dancing. I am happen to have known him and to have been able to capture so many memorable moments in our tenure as friends. I will miss him until l leave this earth. Rest on my Dear Buddy.

I remember going to his line dance classes at Texas Street Recreation Center to learn how to swing out and I was stepping all over his feet. 🤦🏽‍♀️ He finally look at me and said, " Young Lady will you please let me lead and relax your killing my toes." He was so patient and just a natural. He will truly be missed by many.
Nikki, I will continue to lift you up in my thoughts and prayers. Just know that you are the BEST DAUGHTER EVER and YOUR Parents did a great job showing you LOVE because you gave it back to them in their time of need.

Continue to be BLESSED!!
