    My Condolences to the Walden Family on the passing of Gerone.
    I would run into him every now and then. Last talked to him to tell hom of Aunt Barbara passing. Then saw him at the funeral. He was a free spirit that was always on a mission. Im going to miss you cousin when I get back on the road not being able to see you anytime anywhere. Love You

    My condolences to my cousins, Michael, Bettie, Joyce, and Gary. Sorry I was unable to attend your brother’s funeral today, but your family was in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. It will be different visiting Norfolk now and not knowing when or where you will run into Gerone. He is at peace now and can finally stay still and get some rest. RIP cousin!!! You will be missed. Blessings to the Family…

    He always made me feel safe as I walked around the community and being there as we waited for the bus
    His presence uplifted others
    May you find comfort in the memories and prayers offer as you grieve
    May God lift you and keep you close
