Sharon and family, I was so sorry to hear of Gus's passing. Your husband, dad and grandpa played such a huge role in my life. Gus came into my life following his Guillain-Barre episode - we spent many long hours in that physio gym together as he recovered his strength. While I was there to support his physical rehab, Gus became my confident and mentor. We spent hours in laughter, some tears, and lots of conversation! Gus convinced me to change my career direction and become a practice leader. Because of his influence, I have had the opportunity to mentor and guide countless other physios and assistants as they advance in their career. He holds a special place in my heart , With much love, Carol Robertsen
