Dear Doris, Jim, Dan, Greg and families. Please accept my condolences on the death of your Husband and Dad. I have thought of Jerry many times through the years, and am sorry I didn't stay in touch.

I don't know if you remember me. My name is Lorraine Dixon. When I first started at GM in the summer of 1973, Jerry was a blessing. Being from a farm near Belleville, and coming to Oshawa to start work in such a huge place, I was overwhelmed. Didn't know a soul. And there was Jerry, making me feel at home. I was invited to your home on Fernhill Blvd., and also to your cottage. I thank you all so much for your kindness.

Jerry was so proud of "Doris and the boys". He will be fondly remembered by many.
