To the Tobolka family:

Please accept condolences and prayers for healing and the peace that passeth all understanding on the passing of Mr. Jerome. He had a great run. He was a great dad, and instilled in his sons a real work ethic, whether it involved sports or getting a job done. He could tackle almost any project, whether it was building a fish pond, remodeling the house, fixing a car or boat, or designing some gizmo to get a job done easier. He loved his boys, and taught them baseball, football, basketball and track and field, and they all competed at elite levels. He took us water skiing in a classic motorboat that was immaculate and ran like a top.

Mr. Jerome was lanky but strong, a bit bow-legged from years toting a mailbag on his route, and always broke into a grin and waved when I saw him arrive home. He had a keen resemblance to Abraham Lincoln. If he'd ever grown a beard, I would've sworn it was Honest Abe waving back. He was proud of his Czech-Texan heritage. He lived his faith and worked hard to take good care of his family. You honor him daily by how you live your lives.
