Everyone knows what a good man Jerry was, have benefited from his generosity, and have always respected his honesty about his thoughts and beliefs. I feel very blessed to have had the good fortune to consider him as a true friend.
I will always fondly remember the meals and drinks we shared together, and all the nights he and I teamed up against our wives in card and board games. He had an amazing knowledge of sports, movies, and TV shows. I especially envied all he knew about the history of baseball.
But most of all, I especially cherish my memories of the many vacation trips he and Jane planned for us! They were terrific traveling companions, and we visited numerous exotic sites that I would never have otherwise experienced without their guidance. I trust his latest trip will carry him to the heaven he deserves!

One of the most fortunate times for Bill and me is getting to know you and Jerry so well. We would have never gone on the great trips we shared without the two of you. So many great memories and happy times. We will always be friends, and like sisters, but better. Our thoughts are with you always. Much love, Bill and Jenny
