I have very fond memories of Gerry when he worked at Gare and at Wood Press. He was responsible for my free-lance status with both companies. I know how much he loved his daughter Meghan, raising her from an infant as a single dad. Although we hadn't seen each other in many years, I would often think of him. I hope there are Corvettes in heaven.
