I can't wait to read the book. I often wondered why he didn't ever get married. In my opinion his music reflected the joy and the pain within his relationships with women that he let into his life. I guess that he never found the woman that he described in his music. He said that she had to be independent and to be able to look beyond the music and see the man that he really is. I'm so sorry that he didn't find her and what he deserved. She would have been a well loved woman!!!

I have to agree with you in stating that "The woman" Gerald Levert sought ... would have been well loved, well liked and well taken care of!!!
He just seems to have had the charisma, and well intended feelings that a awoman would traditionally have towards her "man." I believe the bumps and bruises of past Loves and Consequent relationships were the "Proving Ground for the Process to marital happiness , unfortunatley "G" never got to experience.

God , his maker knew what was best and called the "Teddy-Bear" home.. Many may feel he was gone to soon, GOD never makes a mistake!!!!!
He choses who , He uses. There is a lesson for us all to learn. Be it from a relational, professional, health, familiar or personal self-esteem issue standpoint. We can all learn something from GERALD LEVERT's UMTIMELY DEMISE.& Hopefully become better for the lessons we learn.
