Gerald was an inspiration. He took it upon himself to deliver video tapes of church services to shut-ins, people who could not get to church. Every Sunday, I would record the service on 3 VHS tape decks plus a DVD burner. He would distribute them at no cost, then return them to me at a later time. This went on for several years. He eventually got a helper when it became too difficult to get around. Today, we deliver the service by Livestream but Gerald deserves the credit for getting it started.
Well done, my friend! Though we miss you here, I know you're greeted by the people you ministered to. Your efforts continue with the same heart, just a different means.
May God comfort his family at this time. He was a visionary, ahead of his time. I'll miss him very much.
