The Lone Star Chapter mourns the loss of one of its' founding members, Dr. James Gerard (Gerry) Shoemaker.  Gerry passed away very suddening on March 31, 2010 at the age of 59.  His wit and humor as well as his very active participation in all chapter activities will be missed.

The chapter took up a collection and sent flowers to the funeral.  Several chapter members attended the services held on April 7, 2010.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
