What a disappointing turn of events. To those that knew him off the internet, my condolences. Rest easy Gerard, you are in a better place now.

I'm deeply saddened by the news.  I never had the pleasure of meeting Gerard, but I always enjoyed his pictures and his seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of trucking in Quebec.

My deepest condolences to the family.  He will be missed.

Each time people pass away, the extreme fragility of life and our inescapable end come back to the point.

As a tribute, how about changing the picture on top of the forum's page with one of Gerard's??? And one of the "world known" curve....

Great idea and a fine way to honor a man who brought so much information about Quebec trucking history to this Forum.
