Add My Condolences

We were so very sorry to hear of Gerald's passing...I have so many wonderful memories growing up of him from polkas at Sunnybrook to how immaculate he kept his cars. We will always remember him at our wedding reception dancing to the one and only polka they played:) Please accept our deepest sympathies and hopefully you all have amazing memories to help you through this difficult time.
