My deepest condolences to the Rivera family. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I knew Jerry since we were in middle school, we both were in band together, and continued our friendship during college hanging with friends Javi, Gera and myself. Then Life happens. We take it for granted you would always be there. You were an amazing person with the biggest smile. You will be missed, my brother, my friend. Liza

Our most sincere condolences to the family of Gerardo. El Senor always takes our best first to show the rest of us the way. A gentleman and someone you could always count on to get things done. His smile, his desire to help others and his kind words will be greatly missed. Rest in peace and Vaya con Dios. May God receive you with open arms in Heaven.
