    Sending love to Julie, Emily and Graham

    We will never forget our visit to Canada with our young sons. Gerald made such an effort to ensure he gave them the best experiences possible – ones that will remain lasting memories for us all.

  • Chris Fabbi says:

    Our thoughts are with you Graham and with your mom and your sister,

    I had the good fortune to be able to have a few good driveway chats with Gerald on the few occasions I met him. Gerald immediately struck me as a kind and warm-hearted individual. I looked forward to visiting with him again after each chat. I know the world is poorer since his passing.

    Best wishes to you all during this difficult time.

    Chris Fabbi and family

    Dear Julie – we just recevied the obituary notice and I am sorry hear of Gerald’s passing. Mike and I were stunned to hear that he had been ill. I fondly remember working with Gerald and our skiing at spring break many years ago now. All the best to you and Emily and Graham..

  • Edie Berke says:

    Dear Klatt Family, I just recently learnt of Jerry’s passing. It was so sad. I met Jerry when he was just 1 year old and the next time I saw him, he was a senior in high school. He struck me as a very fun loving human being. I so wish we could have gotten to know each other better. My sincere sympathy to his wife Julie, and children Emily and Graham.
    Sincerely, Edie Berke (cousin of Gerald).
