Betty our thoughts are with you. At Royal York with Mary, Gerald and I checking out everyones shoes in lobby, he knew the price and what they did for a living. He was a good helper shopping for angel wings, we sure got a lot of laughs in the store. He sure loved his bride.We know he will be missed by all the family
I am so sorry for your loss

Betty, I had many chuckles with Gerald in the office, a great sense of humor and still have a framed oriental fabric he bought for me on one of your adventures. I am sorry to hear of his passing. Doctor David Haist and Terri Haist
