    I have only known Mr. Gerald Bordelon for about a year from our acquaintenances as Walmart employees. He was a very informative and talkative person. He would talk to anyone anytime. I have never seen him in a bad mood, let alone say anything negative. I am saddened that I lost a good friend whom I enjoyed his company. Sometimes, I would spend half of my 1 hour lunch break talking to him as he would greet the people in the Garden Center at Walmart. My heart goes out to his wife, Mrs. Janice, their daughters, and their sons. May God Bless Mr. Bordelon and his family.

    I was saddened to read of my good friend, fishing buddy and Delta Coworker, Jerry Bordelon. Jerry and I shared many laughs and good times together which are now precious memories. My condolences to Janice and all the family.

    When Charles and I begin to reminisce about Jerry, I reminded Charles how glad I was when Jerry was working the flight. Jerry was so patient and kind when I needed a seat on a flight from Baton Rouge back to Atlanta for the twelve years we lived there. I will always remember Jerrys friendly smile.

    Im very sorry to learn that Jerry passed. Although I havent seen Jerry in years I have good memories of him , his daddy and mother. I know Jerry was a hard working man that used to hold down two or three jobs at one time.My sympathy goes out to Janet the kids and Ruby. May his soul rest in piece.

    I knew Gerald for many years worked with him when my dad was the Supervisor of Game Marshalls at LSUsporting events. He was an LSU fan no doubt. We were friends even though I had not seen him in recent years. I wish his family well I know many are saddened by his death.
