"Gerry, My deepest condolences to you. I can not think of anything more difficult to overcome than the death of a son or daughter. Dawn and family, I don't think I ever met you but know you are in our thoughts. Mikael was such a kick ass guy. I wish I could play hockey like him (I would settle for 20% of his hockey skill) . Lisa, Peter and David You are also in my prayers. Roland and Colette Chamberland "
