This is the short film we prepared for the family to watch the day before Gerry’s funeral. Â 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. Â Â An early scene in which Gerry recites one of his favorite poems was filmed shortly after he was admitted to hospital. Â Click on play button in the bottom left of the screen.
