Condolence from Pamela (Aston) DeBord on January 30th, 2018 8:05 am

My prayers and thoughts are with the family especially to my childhood friend Cherie. I spent a big portion of my school years at their home.. I remember how Gener would tell Cherie “your restricted” and how he would laugh saying it. Every time I would sleep over at their house he always have a big bowl of tastykakes for us to eat for breakfast. I thought that so cool… he was a great guy and I am sure will be missed. RIP Gener❤️
