    We’re thinking of all of you in this difficult time. We will miss Ger, his great jokes, his insightful topical discussions. His wood carving of Lesley and Ilana is hanging in our apartment. We think often about the great times we had together, great dinners, food, and company together (and Ger washing the dishes).
    Love, Tinu and Ilana.

    We are so very saddened to hear about Gerry. Our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time. We have many wonderful soccer memories with Gerry, always good natured and ready to do “lines”. His smile and humour were contagious to all. With much love, Lynn and Mark.
