43 years is not enough.  I will always love Gerry.  His greatest gift was how much he loved.  I'm so glad I was the biggest part of his life.  The love of his life.  He is the love of my life.   Bette

Bette, I'm so sorry to hear about Gerry. We all grew up togther. Unfortunately we grow apart. I've thought about you and Gerry often. The last time we got together was when you lived in River Edge on Kinderkamack Road. You and your family have my deepest sympathy. My e-mail address is avuksanic@aol.com. Please keep in touch.

It was obvious to all of us that Bette and Gerry were meant to be together, and It just feels so wrong that he is gone.  Bette, you know Craig and I love you, and although nothing but time can ease your pain, we are here for you, remembering the two of you together.

I used to play with George when we were in grammer school. He lived several blocks away from me but I remember we always had a good time. He was just one of those kids you got along easy with. I had many fond memories. Funny we never spent much time together in HS but I will never forget him.
