Not sure what to say?

Gerry, Andy, Mike and all the Carrolls and all the Barstows. My deepest sympathy to each and every one of you. I met you and Jack, Gerry, when I first came to Mount Olivet and have always enjoyed your love for each other and Jack's big smile, jokes, kindness and gentle spirit. You are a good example of how to live life every day and enjoy everything that you do.

I was so sorry to hear about Jack. You and your family have my deepest sympathy. I really enjoyed being in our bible study classes with you and Jack over the years. His and your comments were always very interesting and thoughtful.

Gerry and Barstow family members,
On behalf of the staff of the Southdale YMCA we extend our condolences. John will be greatly missed as a member and friend of the YMCA. He was a person who by his kind presence enriched all of us that had the opportunity to know him. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time.
God bless,
The Southdale YMCA staff team
