God bless you Gerry you will never be in any more pain you are now with your mom and dad we had some good talks on the phone. we think of the good old days all the Parnell Family and the rest of your family will miss you dearly love you Gerry. R I P.
I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family. The loss of a love one brings much grief and agony, but there is so much comfort that can be found in God’s word the bible. The promise of a resurrection at John 5:28, 29 and death will be no more at Revelation 21:3, 4. Taking in true knowledge of the true God and his son Jesus, assures us eternal life. (John 17:3)
May he rest in peace. He will be missed by us all.
Melissa if you need anything …… you know what sisters are for. Just call.

It was always a pleasure to visit with Gerald – despite life’s adversities, he had a smile on his face, a cheerful disposition and a warm welcome for us – happy to have chat and pet the dogs. He is one of those people you meet in life that you won’t forget. I will miss him on our visits – please accept my sincere condolances.
