Lisa and Neil,

I’m sending you and your family all of my love and condolences during this time. Knowing you and the values you hold and inspire in others, he must have been an incredible person. My father turns 89 in a week and my parents also celebrate their 60th this August. Each day is a blessing I don’t take for granted. I know you didn’t either. May his memory be a blessing. Erica

Dear Marilyn, Lisa, Scott, Neil and Betsy,
We are so sad that this day has arrived. We remember meeting Gerry for the first time at the JCC Pre-School c.1999 – and then spending time with him (and all of you) at countless JCC, Rashi, JDRF, CJP and family events. He was warm, loving, brilliant, engaging, inspiring and funny. And such a mensch! We know that his memory will be a blessing and send you our love and sincere condolences.
Faryl and Jon

I was very saddened to read of Gerry’s death. I have wonderful memories of having participated with Gerry and Marilyn on the March of the Living in 2005.

I am sure that a life of meaningful memories will bring great comfort during this difficult time.
