Dear Ones:: Please know that I hold you in my heart, thoughts and prayers upon the lost of your father and my dear cousin, Gerald. Although I live in New Jersey, I have deep family ties to Cleveland and during childhood spent summers visiting my grandfather and other relatives ; especially my beloved adult cousin, Evelyn Lawson, her husband Earl and your Dad, Gerald. In recent years, Gerald and I reconnected and spoke weekly. We were the last cousins in our generation and often recalled fond memories of family. I will miss him dearly. May he rest in eternal peace. 🙏🏾💕💖💕
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I met Gerald back in 1968 at Fisher Body. What a smooth brother always with a smile and always so positive. I saw Gerald at our Union Hall last summer after voting I told him how well he looked. I will miss my friend may he rest in Paradise.
