Gerry and my Mom , Arbutus Rose were cousins but more than that, they were best friends. When Mom was living the two of them enjoyed going places together or just going for a walk. Sending our condolences to the family for your loss.

To Gerri and the family,
I am so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I will never forget you gathering all of us up in our senior year at East Bank in your mother’s car ( it was a BIG car!) and heading off to Coonskin Park to spend the day. Good memories.
I will keep you in my prayers.
