A very loving husband and Dad who always put God first. He died of Covid. We just got back from vacation to the Ark Encounter where we had a Covid encounter. Was it worth it? Yes, yes, yes! A very wonderful vacation that was the highllight of our senior lives. It was Gerald’s time. He is asking Noah an eternity of questions after wrapping his arms around Jesus and his loved ones. RIP dear husband. I miss you
Marc and family, so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all during this time.
Thinking of you all at this time. From your Oklahoma Family. John Teel
