    Thinking of you Val at this difficult time. You and Gerry were the greatest next-door neighbors ever, and it was my great pleasure to find out Gerry was a fellow goalie in his hockey-playing days. I loved hearing his stories and marveled at his bright outlook even under tough circumstances. Vaya con dios Gerry.

    Dear Val
    We are so sorry to hear of Gerry’s passing. But this is truly an occasion for Dr. Seuss’s quote:” Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened “ we say this because we truly always enjoyed seeing Gerry’s big smile as he greeted everyone at the pool at Boca Shores and was always a true gentleman who showed an interest in everyone around him, kids and adults alike. We are so lucky to have spent time with him over the years.
    We are thinking about you and your family and know that Gerry has left you with many wonderful memories.
    Sharon and Alain
