Gerry was very giving and humble individual that cross my path in life through ministry work in our church community. He inspired myself and others on not settling on something but asking God for strength to move past and continue your journey through whatever comes in your way. I always will miss Gerry' s smile and good nature. I will always remember him at his best. Rest in peace my brother. My sympathy goes out to his daughters and family. I'll see you again my friend. Love yah Ray

My mom, Anita Turgeon, lives at the residence at St Marys. She last saw him at her birthday party in early January. She always speaks well of Mr Berube, who was a fellow volunteer. I have met him several times while visiting mom, and he seemed like such a nice person. Our condolences to the family.

Diane,
Your Dad was always so lucky to have your help and care. You made sure he left our world knowing that he was loved. You will continue to feel his love as he watches over you from heaven.
Take care, Paula
