    Boots was a great guy and was always good to me. I want all of you to know that even though I will not be able to attend the services tomorrow or Wednesday, you will all be in my thoughts. My condolences to each of you.

    Gerry…I am so sorry to hear about Boots. I was one of his nurses @ the Perham Nursing Home. I have to say, he was one of my favorites. I will always remember how he was the “keeper” of the halls, always keeping an eye on everything and everyone for us. I will always have a special place in my heart for him. Take care of yourself Gerry.
