Dear Irene Varnes extending our deepest and heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Gerald Varnes. So very sorry to learn that dear your husband passed away. Wishing you & your family peace and comfort in the days ahead. Lynda Ruban staff & friends at the HSC Foundation - Posted by: Lynda Ruban (staff at Health Sciences Centre Foundation) on: Aug 23, 2021
So sorry to hear. My brother David was good friends with Gerry Jr. I remember seeing him at our house often when I was a young child, and later again when he served as a pallbearer at David's funeral. Our family thought of you often knowing that you suffered the same terrible loss of Gerry Jr. a year after David's passing. You were always so kind to my parents as I know they kept in touch with you from time to time over the years. Wishing peace for your family during this very sad time. - Posted by: Karen Kampen (family friend) on: Aug 22, 2021
