My sincere sympathy to my cousins and family further to the
passing of their brother. My prayers are with you.
Gerry, I am saddened to learn of your passing, yourself and my Step-Grandmother Laina used to take me skiing and build igloos while you lived in Toronto. I am happy to know you had a long life after you moved to Elliott Lake. May you Rest In Peace my friend.
