    Our deepest sympathy to Karen, Auntie Ruth and families.
    Most of our memories of Gerald are as a youngster, so patient with our son Lee especially when Lee would talk him into playing hockey! That’s our favorite and that truly was Gerald’s
    nature..quiet, caring, so easy to get along with, always polite. Although we didn’t see you much,
    we will miss you.
    Again our thoughts are with all of your family.
