    It is with a great sense of loss that we heard of the passing of our friend Jerry. He was more than a wonderful person and a good friend; always kind and considerate, always there for anyone who needed his help. His passing will leave a void in our lives and hearts.
    Our hearts are with you in this time of sorrow.

    It is so hard to say goodbye. Our friendship has lasted through the years and Jerry will always be part of my life. The laughter and good times we shared… and the family times, mine and yours, are fond memories. I was honored to be your friend, to be a part of your life from your single days… to meeting your wonderful wife… to watching your children grow into young men. Thank you for your friendship. You fought a strong battle over the years and we were all, in our own way, preparing ourselves for this day… as did you. Now the pain and suffering are gone. Watch over us. Our prayers are with Anita, Evan, Cody and Kyle and your entire family. Be strong and look forward to the day when we will all meet again.

    Anita, Julie and the entire family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Even though it’s probably been more than 15 years since I’ve seen Jerry at one of the infamous superbowl parties, I do remember his smile and his kindness. He was a special guy who will be missed by many, especially those who loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
