  6. So sorry to learn of Gary’s passing. Sincere sympathy to Janice and all the rest of Gary’s extended family.

  7. Je me souviens des premières fois que j’ai rencontré Gary. Il m’avait beaucoup impressionné car il avait appris à parler français pour Gloria et il le parlait très bien. C’était rare de ces temps qu’un anglophone parle français. Et il commençait toujours la conversation en français lorsqu’il nous rencontrait pour discuter. Je l’admirais beaucoup pour son charisme, Gary avait un grand cœur et il regardait toujours le coté positif des choses. Son grand sourire et sa bonne humeur faisait de lui une personne attachante. Nous garderons que des bons souvenirs de Gary. Qu’il repose en paix.

  8. Our deepest condolences Chris, Mireille, Matthieu, Natasha, Mark and Damien; You are in our thoughts

    Gilles and Andrée
