Joleen, Stephanie, Olivia and family. No words can truly express how very sorry we are for the loss of Gerry. I remember the day Maddie and I met him at Teddy Bear College, beautiful eyes, he was the sweetest little boy. Maddie and Gerry became instant buddies and would play together all the time, than when they went to Pre-K at Emilie Methodist Christian Day School. The beautiful baby contest we put Gerry and Maddie in at the mall, Maddie's birthday party at Burger King where Stephanie and Ashley met, and Maddie and Gerry played for hours in the play area. We are so heartbroken and very truly sorry for your loss, we pray for peace, strength and comfort during this most difficult time.

My heart has been broken since the time I received the phone call from your mom. Gerry I’ve know you since you were five years old. I have to agree with Steph you gave the best hugs even when you got older. My first memory of you was the day of my block party and you took all the tabs off the beer cans and shoved them down my sink drain and clogged it. I smile today thinking about it. You were so kind and loving. Bryanna was so sad the day of your passing. The pain that everyone is experiencing since you passed will last for a very long time. The Depasquale entire family is like my second family for the past 14 years. Joleen my best friend I wish I could take away your pain. Just know that he was loved by many and he will be forever be remembered though sharing memories of him. To Gerry’s dad I did not personally know you but I am so sorry for the loss of your son and the pain you are going through. I hope in time the holes in the family’s hearts can be filled with his memories. Prayers and hugs for everyone.

I’m so broken without you. There’s so many wonderful memories with you. This page will not be enough to share it all. I remember the time we were wrestling around in your room. I tickle to you to the point where you had tears in your eyes. We started sweating to the point where I said you smelt like a Hoagie. We both laughed as mom started laughing down stairs. Another memory I’d like to share was when we had a huge thunderstorm going on. I was dead asleep only to be woken up by you running to my bed and curling up next to me. I didn’t say anything to you. I just smiled and went back to sleep. I knew you were safe. You always tried to be mister tough guy. But when you were scared, you’d run to me, when you were scared of the storm you’d ask can I sleep with you. I will never forget one of your greatest traits, your hugs. You always gave the best hugs. When you hugged me especially when we fought, you’d hold me tight. I knew you truly loved me. I knew you were truly sorry. I wish I could of done more for you. I wish I could of taken away all the pain you were in. I love you more then anything. Please wait for me buddy. Until we meet again, Rest In Peace my beautiful blue eyed angel. My Gerry bear
