My uncle Gerry lost his battle with cancer last night. He had been courageously dealing with cancer and the side effects of his treatments for over two years, but the end came quickly and suddenly. Uncle Gerry was my dad's youngest sibling. Dad was 16 when he was born, and he was very special to him. He was a very successful businessman in the telecommunications industry, but I will always remember him as my handsome and very "cool" uncle.
