Gerry Cooper gravely ill

     Gerry Cooper, one of Fort Lauderdale's leading citizens, is gravely ill and might not pull through.

     Cooper built an empire of rental buildings over the last three decades throughout Fort Lauderdale. He has also served in many volunteer capacities, including the Rotary Club, the Sister Cities Program, the Planning and Zoning Board, and many others.

     Cooper's son, Caldwell Cooper, choking back tears, told me that his dad is "one tough son of a bitch", but added that things aren't looking good.

     Gerry has been battling Leukemia for many years, and is in a undisclosed hospital in the North East, fighting for his life.

     The family asks for prayers for Gerry.
