A TRIBUTE TO A WONDERFUL MAN:
This is a picture of my daughter, her son, my sister and brother-n-law. Stephanie, Tanek and I had the great pleasure of visiting Rena and Gerald this past summer in the beautiful Northwest state of Vancouver, Wash. Gerald and Rena were married 50 years on June 1. Gerald has been a pastor for many many years and was retired, but still preaching. He was a Godly man with a wonderful sense of humor. Everyone loved him. He passed away on December 7, 2007. He is in Heaven now and "Heaven's Gain is our Loss:. We miss him. Stephanie and Tanek and I had the privilege of enjoying a week with him. This was taken on our last day there. We drove up to see the falls and so many beautiful places. The day was beautiful and one we will always cherish. I have a wonderful sister that I don't get to see enough as she is on the other side of the country. But this was a visit we will always remember. Tanek also took his first steps while there and Gerald knew it was because he was at their house. They were called Uncle Grand-pa Gerald, and Aunt Grand-ma Rena. He loved them and I will be posting more pictures of our visit up there. The country side is absolutley beautiful.
