Thoughts and prayers to the family
Dearest Linda, Margie and all of Jerry’s family….My memories of your precious brother go back as far as I can remember. Our mom’s and your mom’s friendship was one of those special bonds that lasted from childhood throughout their entire lives. You were our family too. I cherish the memories I have of visits between our homes and the time we were blessed to spend with all of you. Jerry was special, as are all of you. May the memories you made brighten your days ahead and may you take comfort in the life he lived and the immense joy he brought into our lives. Mine are those of when I was a little girl and still shine bright in my memories today. It was so good to get to spend time with him and you at Hain’s birthday party. God bless and keep you, my dear friends. I love you and extend my deepest sympathy. Memories of him will burn forever. ♥️♥️
