  7. Dear Joan and Susan,
    Kevin and I are saddened to learn of Jerry’s passing (read in Calgary Herald). We send our heartfelt condolences.

    A few years ago, I worked with Jerry in the Purchasing Dept. of Husky Oil. He was a terrific gentleman and a compassionate, wonderful guy. It’s true, his sense of humour and kindness will always be remembered as well as how devoted he was to you and Susan.

    Sincere Sympathy & Warm Regards
