Jerome would have been 18 or so when I first met him, guitar on his lap, and his doll near by. Was that Howdy Doody or Roy Rogers? I only remember that it was a cowboy. Watching him watch wrestling on television was such fun. Jerome was so serious about it and never failed to express his joy or frustration with his favorite wrestlers. I loved how Dot and Jess kept him at the center of the family. I loved his sweet and gentle nature, and I loved his delightful grin. I will never forget Jerome.

I will always treasure the times when Jerome
And I would wrestle on his mothers living room
Floor. Jerome was very strong when we wrestled. A couple of times he got me in a head lock and cranked it so hard his mother had to intervene because Jerome was playing the part of a bad guy. My aunt Dot used to laugh so hard at our wrestling matches. What wonderful memorie.
I love Jerome and remember his kindness.
He is and always will be my favorite cousin.
