May God’s peace be with your Mom, you & all of the family during this difficult time.
It was my privilege to call Gerhard “brother” for over 40 years. In all that time, I am sure he never uttered an unkind remark about anyone. He was a kind, generous and loving man who made the world a better place. We will remember him with happiness and joy because he would want us to do this. R.I.P.
We are very sorry for your loss. Gerhard was a great guy and he will be missed. Our condolences to the family and his many friends.
