We only found out this evening about Gerry's passing and we are so deeply sorry for your loss. We were away from 8/21 to the 31st and no one contacted us. He was a great guy and a good friend. We enjoyed our dinner together with the Mones and you and Gerry several months ago. Will keep that memory of the 6 of us.
