Gerry Bennett was a source of inspiration and a great support to everyone who had the chance to work with him. He was a physician, professor, practitioner, researcher, scholar, humanist, and friend. His death is also a huge loss to the medical and scientific community, where he was a renowned geriatrician and researcher.

Gerry's was a strong and committed voice, as seen most recently in his work with WHO, for the international effort to prevent family violence and especially elder abuse. His enormous contribution to the field of Elder Abuse was well known not only in the UK but all over the world.

The plaque is installed outside the entrance to the ward where Gerald was consultant at The Royal London Hospital Mile End (London). (Actual Size - 420mm x 300mm - approx. 16.5 inches x 11.8 inches)

Anne Angel

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the the death of Anne Angel, member founder of INPEA, one of our two North American Board Representative Members.

Anne passed away on Saturday July 5, in Toronto, Canada, following a short illness over the last few months. Anne was magnificent lady, very supportive to everyone who had the chance to work with her, and did a great deal from her position to help and enhance the INPEA Network from the very start in Adelaide, Australia, 1997.

She was a wonderful mother and wife, had a great sense of humour, was a very special cook and was a strong and committed person to everything she thought, believed and worked for. She was a very much loved and appreciated friend, for everybody who had the opportunity to know her well.

Her death is a huge and unexpected loss and we are going to miss her a lot.
