To Aurore and family and friends,
Our deepest heart felt sympathy. I feel very sad for our loss and passing of my awesome dear and close friend, but Gerry leave’s wonderful memories that I will cherish forever. We knew each other since high school and both worked together for the city of Sudbury..Together we solved the world’s problems in hard work or laughter. We both kept in touch after retiring and still solving the world’s problems, well anyway we sure tried..
I feel very fortunate to have met Gerry and to have such a good friend for eternity.
To all Love and prayers
