    Mrs. Stephanie Sinkfield and Family - My prayers are with all of you during the loss of your dear loved one. I knew Gerald because he was the brother to my Goddaughter Andula, and the brother to my pastor, Antoni. But mostly because he was the son to a very sweet angel that I love dearly-Katie Sinkfield. I love all of you very much and pray God's blessings upon you. “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” - Revelation 21:4
