Farewell Gerry – (a tribute to Josh’s grandpa)

 

This is the short film we prepared for the family to watch the day before Gerry’s funeral.   The footage is taken from the many hours of material we have of Josh’s grandpa most of which was shot while he was in a psychiatric hospital in Scotland and experiencing the devastating effects of dementia.   An early scene in which Gerry recites one of his favorite poems was filmed shortly after he was admitted to hospital.   Click on play button in the bottom left of the screen.
