Paula and family: Sorry for your loss and my condolences to you Paula, as a former co-worker. I got to know Gerald thru the holiday parties and meetings we had at our work. I always enjoyed his company and our conversation always ended up talking about Wheelersburg football. Oh how he loved the 'burg football! Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Paula, and the family. God Bless.

Scrap and I had many a conversation about Southern Ohio Highschool Football. We worked together for 29 years at MCC2 in Columbus. I send my most sincere condolences to his family and friends.

I am so sorry to hear about Scrap's passing. We all go back a long ways together, 1979 I think when we first started working together at Metal Container. Scrap and I used to ride together to work. We had a lot of fun together. He was a good friend. Time passes so quickly. Paula - I think about you guys often. God bless you and all of your family.
