From: Will & Susanne Merrett
Relation: friend/customer

It was with much sadness that we learned of the passing of our friend Gerry. Over the past 8 years we must have bought and sold 8 vehicles with Gerry and he was always fair and trustworthy. Not too many folks can say that about all business dealings these days.
We will miss our times with Gerry and always remember him as a gentle kind man.
Farewell friend, we will meet again.

From: Ida LaPrairie
Relation: Ex-Wife

As our Daughters Father, I was so sorry to hear of your passing – as were they.

I do hope you find happiness in Heaven with Louise.

Nicole, Chantelle, Drew and I will all miss you.

Love, Ida
