So sad to hear of Gerald’s passing. He was a very sweet hard working fellow. Took care of the people around him and was so appreciated in our wonderful Lake Community. Had a visit with Dorothy today. Spock, Ginger and Dorothy are missing you, and 05 will never be the same without you Gerald.

My condolences to Dorothy and the entire McBride family,,,,,,,,,,, especially Stewart, Linda, and Darlene (schoolmates),
I started Grade 1 with Gerry, and we were very close friends well into our late 20's.
I have many fond memories of activities and conversations......and good times!

My sincere condolences to Dorothy and the McBride family. Gerry was one of the first friends I made after moving to Cobden. He would always lend a hand when needed and helped me out on many occasions. I'm sure he will be missed.
