Dear Geraldine and Family: I was so sorry and saddend to hear of Gerry's passing. I have fond memories of being woken up on Sunday mornings by those canuck boys playing music with my dad and company. I always admired the two of you. Being in both your presence was truly a gift to cherish always. My thoughts and prayers to you all.

I was so sorry to hear of Gerry's passing. He was a wonderful fiddler. I never forgot hearing him at Weiser many, many years ago. I pray that the love of family and friends will help ease the pain of his passing.

Dear Geraldine and family; I'm so sorry to hear that Gerry is gone. I can never thank all of you enough for the way you took Tony and I into your home back in the '70s.

Dear Geraldine and Family; Vivian and I were saddened to hear of Gerry's passing. Gerry was one of our country's fiddling icons. His name and his fiddling were well known and well respected. I thoroughly enjoyed Gerry Style and I learned many of his tunes. I have all of his recordings which I treasure. At the fiddle jam in St Antoine NB last Monday, several of Gerry's compositions were played in memory of Gerry. I know Gerry's music will live

Dear Robichaud Family: Please let me begin by saying that I am so deeply sorry for your loss! My name is Monique Mola, a.k.a. Monique Leger, daughter of Rose and Zoel Leger. Back in the day, I was a step dancer. I have danced and competed at the French Club in Waltham many times.
