When he saw me riding his motocross track in 2014 I thought I was making trouble, but instead I made a friend. Such a good one that I bought the house down the road and am so glad I did because the Snapp and Goins family have been such a great part of my life. I’m thankful for the time I had with you Gerald. I’ll miss you buddy.

My condolences to Gerald’s family.
Gerald was one of the best friends I could have ask for. He was always friendly and I enjoyed just sitting and talking with him. I know that he will be missed by all that knew him, especially his family. But we can all look forward to seeing Gerald again on the other side.
