From: Patricia Vanier
Relation: former GMU student

Humble, Wise, Compassionate and Good Humoured – that is Jerry as I remember him. He was one of very few visitors I had as a Mental Health student and patient when I was sick. His gentle, yet strong, presence helped me on my healing path when I needed it. Bright Blessings on his journey to the Spirit world and comfort for the family who loved him <3

From: Kristin Blades
Relation: Through work

Deepest condolences to Gisele and your family. Jerry (and Gisele) welcomed my motley crew of Coyote Kids out at their retreat. Jerry was a truly spiritual man and instantly could connect with the kids on a personal level as well as offering encouragement to their caregivers and myself. God bless and you will be missed.

From: Peter Joseph Dranchuk
Relation: He was the first Elder to teach me

He was a good Elder and was the first to teach me about Aboriginal Culture and Spirituality, and introduced me to a whole new world. I suppose he is now exploring a new world, too. My heart goes out to his family and good friends, and all the people who will miss his Spirit and Kindness, and smile. I only knew him a little, but feel his loss from us this day. Hai Hai, Jerry.
