Gary and Family, I'm so sorry to hear about your father. I know how difficult this is...my deepest sympathies.
Jerry was a wonderful man. I worked with him at Dodge City and he was an honorable man who was always pleasant to employees who worked at all levels in the company. His kindness and sense of humor left a positive impression with me. So sorry for your loss.
Judy and Family, On behalf of our family, we are sorry to learn of Uncle Gerald's passing. My mom and I visited with Uncle Gerald in the Spring 2014 and had such a wonderful time. It was really fantastic to laugh with Uncle Gerald and also to see the Casey humor in action. When we left, Uncle Gerald walked us out and we hugged goodbye. Then, he said "hey, wait a minute, I coming with you guys". He smiled and we all laughed. My father will be very pleased to spend time with Uncle Gerald in Heaven and we will pray for him and your family. With Deepest Sympathies, Sue, Brian, Mike, Kevin and T.J.
Gary and Family so sorry for your loss. Sending hugs your way.
