Gerry was my cousin. I only met him 3 or 4 times, unfortunately, and he was much older than me. I remember the day he died. My family received a phone call and my father turned to my mother and said, my nephew Gerry died. He was ashen. We couldn't believe it and then he told us how and we couldn't believe that. Life has so many twists and turns of fate, we should be thankful for every second and cherish one another. Rest in peace forever. Stella de Sena
