    I met Sunshine at the Shwarma place and always loved to tease him and we always laughed. It sure won’t be the same not seeing him when I go there. I am very sorry to see you lose such a nice man. God is holding him for us.

    I stopped by Calgary Shwarma at lunch today for a treat I get every few weeks and I am very sad to hear of Jerry’s passing. No matter what sort of day I was having I could alway count on a smile and a few stories from “Sunshine”. I do know he loved those around him very much and he was very concerned for his Mom this last year when she was in the hospital. I also knew her loved going to the odd Hitman game with his nieces and nephews. Jerry was a very good and decent man and Calgary is a lesser place with his loss.

    God bless.
