“We, Fr. Gerry’s family, would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody in the Irish community in Toronto for your support during our recent bereavement. We were touched by the huge turnout at his funeral and the solidarity of the Irish community. It was a pleasure to meet so many people over the few days who had such nice things to say about him and great stories to share. It would not be possible to acknowledge everybody individually but please know that your sympathy & kindness will be remembered with great affection and gratitude.
The Scott Family,
Elphin, Co. Roscommon”
