My sincere condolences. I'm truly sad that I cannot attend the visitation. Col Gould was an authentic example of an officer and a gentleman. A truly generous and humble man who always belittled his feats of arms and truly enjoyed interacting with the Officers and senior NCOs, but especially with the troopers and corporals. As RSM I had the honour of escorting him often and as a Captain I will cherish his friendship and jocularity. Droit au But/In Hoc Signo Stabilitas

I was fortunate to make Garry's acquaintance at the RMR where he joined us on many occasions, distinguishing himself with a boisterousness and joie de vivre normally associated with men 1/4 his age. As an example of his humility, I recall him thanking my generation for winning the Cold War (all, of course, without leaving hearth & home or firing a shot). One of Garry's qualities I most admired is one I associate with royalty and clergy: the ability to make everyone he met feel important. I hope to be like Garry one day.
My condolences to the entire family on their loss.
