I always enjoyed conversing with Gerry at various events and while I haven;t seen him in recent years, I will always hold the memory of Gerry always being the consumate "gentleman farmer". Bristol will miss his contributions of talent and work as he embellished the City Reputation as the "Mum Capital of the World". We will miss him. Our prayers are with you for peace and understanding as we all recognize we have a short journey in this life. With sincere sympathy, may God Bless and strengthen you.
