I was just a teenager when I heard Gerry's music. I was enchanted immediately. The song 'I Like it' was one of the first I heard on the Pop Radio Station in Auckland, NZ in those early 60's. Then when I heard Gerry again in NZ on the North Shore, when my daughter was with me, I heard those times again. Since his passing, I have been playing his CD that my daughter gave me when I was 65, with all those fabulous songs of the 60s. His voice, tenacity, love of being a 'caring' and 'real' person have endeared me and in the past two weeks the songs of 'You'll Never Walk Alone', 'Don't let the Sun Catch your Crying', 'I Like it' and 'Girl on a Swing' have been my constant companions. Still gone too soon, such a talented, humble and caring man. His legendary contribution to music and sports will never be forgotten. Blessings to his family from Auckland, New Zealand.
