viva bloechlinger held - 22 days ago

Gerry, my dear and generous brother in law. With great sadness we must realize and accept that you are not able to pick Alan and me up anymore at Dorval- Airport like every summer. You always made our stay with you and Lise in Canada so precious and unforgettable. You baked Alan's favorite orange cake for him, you prepared the best shrimp cocktails in the world and you did put the juiciest roast on the grill. We will miss you a lot and thank you and Lise for all what you have done for us in those 48 years we know each other. We hope that you fellow a bright light into the world over the stars. With love and appreciation, Viva Bern, Switzerland
