My deepest sympathy to the family of Gerald. Mr. Euting was my 5th grade teacher many, many years ago. He was the greatest and always held a special place within my heart. He was a wonderful teacher and made 5th grade fun. Gerald was very dedicated to his profession. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. To his family, I pray that you will be comforted by the special memories that you hold dear to your hearts. I´m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
