It is with great sadness that we thank all our
friends in both the United States and Ireland for their thoughts and
prayers after the tragic death of our sixteen year old son, Grant,
in a car accident on November 18, 2006. Grant was a musician and a
wonderful son and we miss him terribly. You can read more about him

On January 1st, 2007, Gerry accepted a position

Where We Are Today:
Today, Kim and Gerry live in Sligo.
After leaving Ireland in 1983, they originally
returned to Southern California where Gerry attended the University
of California at Irvine (UCI) and earned his MBA and Kim took a job
as Director of Publications with Advanced Business Microsystems
software (now known as Epicor) and dabbled in local musical theater.
After leaving college, Gerry took a job as the Western Regional
Sales Manager for AECO Products.
In 1988, Kim and Gerry became parents with the
birth of their first son, Gerald, and in 1990, they relocated to Atlanta as
Gerry was promoted. In September of the same year their second son,
(d. 2006) was born.
Kim stopped working, preferring to be a
full-time mom, but she never stopped singing as they built their
first studio, a 16 track analog setup, in the basement. Both Gerry
and Kim did some voiceover work and some radio spots for local
After moving to South Carolina, Kim rekindled her involvement in entertainment. Last year, she starred in
the Town Theater's
production of the Wizard of Oz. The Town Theater is the oldest community theatre building in continuous use in the United States. Just prior to that, she had leading roles in the Theater's productions of Peter Pan and Cheaper By The Dozen. Kim
has also produced the local school's talent show for the past four years and has created a new standard for the annual event by incorporating the student acts within the structure of a story which provides a unifying theme for the show. She has also worked as a news announcer on local radio station WIS
and continues to do voiceover work for radio advertisements.
Gerry continues to work with both music and video. His production company, GMS Productions, specializes in "industrial" videos for training and product marketing. He has also done some work for regional TV and produced local variety videos.
Gerry and Kim have recently completed a 32 track digital/analog recording studio in their home and plan to begin recording original music over the coming months.
