    Gerald Perrotta, was one of the best men we had here on earth. He was a loving father, smart husband, and strong army man who served our country. He was kind and extremely funny. He would light up any room he was in. Although I didn’t get to be around him as much as I would’ve wanted, I know he was a great man and anyone who’s known him would say the same. Gerald is in Gods family more now, watching over everyone as a guardian angel. God always picks the best ones first. He knew Gerald was a great man on earth and would be an even better angel in heaven.
