Jerry always had the biggest laugh. We remember him fondly from all his grandfathers parties. He brought joy and friendship wherever he would go. Our heart breaks for Marie and Marian who loved him so dearly. He was family to us and will be greatly missed.
Rest In Peace Jerry.

Rest in Peace Cuz: The best vanilla egg cream came across your counter on the hot summer days, and your enormous smile lit up every room you strode into.
Your party for Grandpa Vinnie with the stripper was a classic and still family table conversations to this day.
You and Marie were the Abbott and Costello of the family..your comments...Maries' retorts always brought a chuckle.
Perhaps most memorable was the huge handshake that always turned into a crushing love - hug !!!
Uncle Buddy and Aunt Marion, My Dad and Mom , Mike and Grandpa have the eternal meal waiting for you ...Blessings

Dearest Marie,

I know we haven't been in touch for a very long time, but fond memories of all the wonderful times we spent together have stayed in my mind and heart.

You and Charlie were more than just friends, you were as close as family as both Eddie, Gregory and I had. Always there for us and if there is anything I can do to ease you during this sad time, just let me know.
Sincerest regards,
