So sorry did not know you had passed. Sorry I did not meet you when you were here.

You were known to me as the grandfather and "FRIEND" pf my great-nephew Travis.

The posts about your friendly smile were meaningful. I;m sorry Travis lost such a good friend.

My aunt, Jackie Thurman, introduced us to Dr. Latimer, and he was our dentist until he retired. He certainly made a difference in my dental hygiene, but also my life in general. In a world where everything changes, where the sidewalk moves under your feet, he was a rock. It was a comfort that you could depend on him - and his office - being the same, every time you visited.

Please accept my condolences. I and my entire family were his patients, and I remember very fondly how kind he was. The last time I went to see him was in 1991 when I didn't have dental insurance, but he worked me in and charged me only what I could afford. You just don't see that anymore. Thank you.

Our church, our city, our world lost one of the finest men we have ever known. He always had a smile and a friendly greeting for everyone. He was the first person we saw when we entered our class room on Sunday mornings, and he never failed to make us feel welcome. He was a true and caring friend with a great sense of humor. We will truly miss him.

Over the many years the smile and a cheerful word was the greeting that Gerald gave to each of us in the Wedding Ring Class. He served his country, his friends and his family with love and devotion. One of Gods children has returned home.

My memory of Gerald is that he was always cheerful and authentic. My memories go back to the early days of the Wedding Ring Class and the friendly buzz around the class as I joined my mother prior to the 10:55am service. My church activities in recent years have placed me in the Family Life Center where the Wedding Ring Class now meets. For as long as he was able, Gerald was always the first to arrive to the classroom
