    Thanks for your article. As Gerry’s brother, it is very rewarding to know that Ted and Bruce have dedicated so much of their time and energy in carrying on Gerry’s dreams. The World needs more people like Ted and Bruce to help more of the poorest of the poor in Haiti and parts of Africa improve their chances for a better lives.
    As a public health entomologist involved in malaria control projects in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, I can assure you the World would be a very different place if we had more people like these two gentlemen and the support of their wives and families.
    All the best,
