Judy, Shawn and Scott
We are so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jerry was a very loving and caring man to his family and everyone that he met. I can imagine that after the gates of heaven opened and he met his heavenly father, other loved ones were waiting for him with open arms. Dad and Vic welcoming Jerry with that Simmons Laugh only they had; Grandma and Grandpa hugging him like no other,and Aunt Mad bossing them all around! What a gathering they have had. I will never forget if it hadn't been for
Uncle Jerr we would not have had the time we did with Dad. I will always be grateful to him for that. As we got older I will not forget the special times all of us spent around Vic and Susie table, visiting, listening to stories, laughing and eating the best food ever. He was loved and will be missed.

Love, Jackie and Howard
