Gloria and family! I was shocked and saddened when I read in the paper this morning that Gerry has left us.It hit me hard and brought tears to my eyes.He was a good man and I know he was a good husband to you and the children that you both shared. He was my friend and I will always remember him for that as well as working for him so many years ago. Gerry was one of the best bosses I have had in my lifetime. We had a lot of fun working together and I enjoyed working for him.He taught me a lot and I am grateful for that. We had a lot of fun hunting too. I remember when he had his VW beetle and he took it up into the mountain after it had snowed heavy and I thought oh no we are going to get stuck on the mountain but we didn't. I could go on and on. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated him and I will always consider him as my friend. My sincere sympathy and condolences to you and your family. Walt
