Uncle Jerry is with Aunt Rosemary now in spirit, and for eternity. Always beautiful memories of your whole family filled with love and laughter from all the teasing and fun with your whole family. May his memory be eternal.

So many wonderful memories of times spent over the years with Rose Mary and Jerry. Their thoughtfulness and kindness was always so appreciated. Good food, good times, good fun, wonderful friends, are etched in my memory. My love, prayers and sympathy goes to Glenna and Lars.

Jerry would see me and my West Highland terrier walking by and he would step out on his driveway and say, " that's a good looking dog!". Always friendly, always engaged, such a sweet man! Blessings for your loss.

Jerry and I have been neighbors for about 30 years. He and Rosemary moved to 86 Terrace just before we did. Jerry was a good neighbor and when Rosemary went into the hospital, he would visit every day. He lives an interesting life and may he Rest In Peace.
