Al, Ricky, Debbie and Gina - I am so saddened and heartbroken to hear about Gerry’s passing. I have such wonderful memories of Gerry from my childhood. Countless sleeepovers spent with your family at your home in West Bridgewater and the new cottage on the pond in Mashpee. Gerry’s passion for life and for nursing inspired me to become a nurse. May God bless you and comfort you in the days ahead as you cherish the memories of a fun and loving wife, mother and grandmother who lived life to its’ fullest. Rest In Peace, Gerry!

Dear Albert, Gina, Debbie and Richard and all your loved ones, Bill and I send our sincere condolences. We were happy to see Gerry in January at my art show but regret we didn't have much time to speak with her personally. Bill and I commented on the lovely photo of her in the paper, and the first thing that came to mind was that every time we saw Gerry she ad that lovely smile on her face. We remember how welcoming she was to Kerry when Gina used to babysit, and how Kerry loved to stay overnight at the Orlandos. We remembered visited the family down at their home on the pond, and going to the Barnstable Fair from there. We fondly remember when Al and Gerry came down to visit us in Dennisport on the motorcycle. It's propbably the only time we ever saw a motorcycle in the Grove! Al, you and Gerry raised a lovely family. Sincerely, Tilda and Bill Bystrom P.S. I will forward Gerry's obituary to Kerry in Germany.
