  1. Nicole, Carrie and family members. We were so shocked to hear about the loss of Gerry. Nicole it was so nice to meet you in Emyvale. I was with Don and Marsha when we met. Wanted to tell you some funny storries about your Dad when he and Earnie Doller lived together as young friends in Calgary back in 1969/70. He was such a great guy. Send me your email when things settle down and when you can use a little up lift. Love to all from… Karl
