Andres Joe Gerardo(December 4, 1933 - June 10, 2009)

I cried when you passed away. I still cry today. Although I love you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A Golden Heart stopped beating, hard-working hands at rest. My Heart was broken to prove to me that He only takes the Best. My friend, Leroy speaks of a bright well, where you drop a coin and history will tell, whether your death was God's will, Or the Lack of a Surgeon's Skill. Sorry this is late, Dad. Having trouble with a spiteful, wicked TROLL! Love, Your daughter, Gloria
