Not sure what to say?

You will be missed.It was fun working with you in the recital hall.I regret that I didn't stay in touch after nmsu.My loss.
I'm sorry for your loss-whoever you are reading this now.

I knew Ger throughout his life, and spoke at his memorial. He was my oldest friend, and now leaves a very large hole in my being.

Gerry was always a good friend, enthusiastic supporter, and will be missed by those he touched.

I've know him since 1st grade at Pinon and went to school with him through high school. Hard to see him go. He will be missed!

I was in Gerald's graduation class in Los Alamos, and I remember him as a quiet, gentle soul with a quick wit and smile to match. Sounds like he was doing what he loved and accomplished so much. The posts testify to those many he touched. My prayers are with his family and friends who will miss him.

I met Gerald over 24 years ago, and worked with him all these years on Chamber Ballet productions and NM Senior Olympic dance and talent competitions. He was a talented, patient, intelligent, smart, humerous, really nice guy to work with. I enjoyed talking with Gerald on various subjects. He was a man of great potential, held back by health problems, but he touched a lot of people in positive ways. I'll miss you my friend, and certainly not forget you.

Gerald was my boss at the Atkinson Recital Hall for years, my mentor and my friend. He helped guide me to be a better person and to pursue my dreams in music. You will be so missed Ger!

I too worked with Gerald on the Roswell project, as the artist.
We had that wonderful TV interview together. He was a brilliant composer. My prayers go out to his friends and family.

I am so sorry to hear of Gerald's passing. He was a brilliant composer and marvelous individual. He composed my music for the Intergalactic Belly Dance for the Roswell 97 performances. He lives forever in his music.
