Through the years of knowing Gervais, I've known him to be a quiet, gentle spirit. God has called him home because his work here is done. He has touched our lives in so many ways and will be well missed. Thank you Gervais for touching my life and my prayer and thought are with the family. Be strong Barbara and look forward to when you are reunited. God bless. Posted: Sun Aug 05 21:40:43 EDT 2007
