As Gerald’s family we would like to thank dad’s friends for their lifelong friendship, kindness, and support. They were many, and they stood beside dad through both the joys and the hardships. We will always be grateful for your friendship with our father. We would also like to mention the countless men that dad worked with during his time in the lumber camps. Dad was proud to have worked alongside so many strong and goodhearted men. His fond stories of working in the various woods camps in central Newfoundland were endless. We are so blessed to have had a father who aged gracefully and who loved his family so dearly. Thank you, dad, for instilling in us the virtues and beliefs that served you so well and will guide us on the road ahead.
