Janie and Family,
I only met Gerry one time, but my memory of him is very vivid. Back in the 1980s my mom had hired him to do some electrical work in our basement and I remember meeting him and being very shy around him as, after all, he was not only my good friend's older brother, but he was also devastatingly handsome, and a mature "older" guy to talk to (he being almost 7 years older than me) -- all of which conspired to make me even more tongue-tied and shy around him, LOL. My mother was also very taken with Gerry's professional behavior as an electrician and also in general, for when he had left (after doing a stand-up electrical job) and for many years later, she often remarked how "gracious, polite, well-spoken, professional and courteous" he had been. And the house never once caught on fire! (just teasing). That's the kind of impression Gerry made on people, truly, and those are the qualities of someone very special.
Please find comfort in knowing that your dearest Gerry is back with God, his Creator, in His True Home ~ and he's happy, healthy, dancing, singing, eating, laughing, watching hockey, cheering hockey, playing hockey! and he is looking down on you all with love and eagerness in his still-beating heart -- anxiously awaiting the time when you ALL will be reunited as a family once again.
"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
With love and our deepest sympathies,
Maggie [Mags](and Ronnie)
