  13. Janet & Cliff McGuire wrote:

    No words we can offer will make your hurt go away. We know this firsthand as Janet’s father passed away last week. Gerry was quite a lady with a host of talents. I am certain that raising all you kids was no easy task and holding the fort together when the cousins came for long summer visits was always a challenge. Even as we get older and move further away it does not change the love and respect for family, and we have only good memories of your mom. She was your Dad’s right arm, a pillar in the community and a spirit within the church. Our family cannot be there with you because of quarantine but know we are thinking about each and everyone of you. Be at peace in your hearts. Cliff McGuire & family

    The thought of Aunt Gerry’s knowing smile brings back childhood memories of endless Schomberg summers. Trixie the quarter-horse. The pond. The organic ducks. The hill. The long driveway that leads to her welcoming home. The original organic farm to table. Her infectious laugh. She will be sorely missed.
