From one Irish family to another who’s friendship began so many years ago when we were neighbors just blocks apart on Flora Place and classmates together at St. Margaret’s, please accept our most heartfelt sympathy on your family’s loss and know that we too share in your sorrow and grieve for your loss. And know too, that whenever friends and neighbors gather and talk turns to the days of auld lang syne, Jerry and all of his kindness and his jokes will surely be included.

And from our grandparents, who came here from the Motherland (Counties Cork and Mayo) in the early 1900’s (their teenage years) an Irish Blessing that was a favorite of theirs and spoken in a brogue so thick you could cut it with a knife:

May the good earth be soft beneath you when you rest upon it;
May it rest easy over you when at last you lay under it;
And may it rest so lightly over you that your soul will be out
from under it quickly and on its way to God!

The Family of the late Eileen and Anthony Slay
Danny, Joey, Dennis, Michelle, Cynthia, David and Lisa
