    Don’t even have the words to express my sadness over your loss. Roger, I am sure a piece of you went with him, Barbara you were the absolute love of his life and will always have his heart. So very very sorry for your loss. I will feel this loss myself. I will always have the glass basket he gave me to remember him by filled with his favorite treats on my station at work. And to the niece and nephew who have always been there for Gerry and Barbara and continue to be there for Barbara, he was very appreciative and trusting of you both. I’m sure it gave him comfort to know Barbara would be taken care of. I was only his hairdresser but I feel like I lost a uncle and will miss his words of wisdom.
    Sincere condolences and love.
