My condolences to all of Gerry's families. I am seeing both Gerry & Anita still squabbling over certain things since they are both together again. They were friends of ours from The Hideaway back in the 90's when we were ALL a lot younger. Sorry for your loss, but hope you will keep the good times with both your parents in your hearts and minds over the years.

God Bless
