I have been living next door to Jerry for about 27 years, I couldnt have hand picked a better neighbor. Through these years me, my husband Jerry my son Matthew and daughters Nicole and Jennifer have had a very special bond with Pops. From the time I was pregnant with Matthew Pops had his available times to take me to the hospital in case my Jerry couldn't get home from the city. as the years went by Pops became another grandfather to our children. At times Pops thought my kids lived with him because they were always over there. He would say to Jen "hey little girl don't you have a home of your own"... And of course Jen would say "oh stop Pops you love when I'm here" and he did... He was such a tremendous part of all of our lives and will be very missed... Gerard and I were saying just the other night how lucky we are to have Pops and Nanny in our lives... The best word we came up with is PRICELESS.... We love you Pops rest in peace... Xoxoxo

To all of "Jerry's" family.

I met Jerry when I worked in the 73Pct. in 1965. He was not only a good NYC policeman but was a fine person to know and a good friend..

I know he is with GOD and is watching over his family.

I have comfort knowing my Dad is now in his Father's house.
For Jesus said,"In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?"

I would like to thank our family, friends and neighbors for being there for my Dad and Mom during this time of need. You have always been there, going out of your way to serve and love unconditionally. For this I am grateful.

I'm sure my Dad counted himself blessed to have family and friends who we're caring and loving to help nurse and care for him as his condition deteriorated.

I would like to share a poem that I believe would be a reflection of my Dad's thoughts.

Miss Me But Let Me Go - author unknown

When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set on me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little---but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me---but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take,
and each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
go to the friends we know.
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me---but let me go.

I love you Dad and I will miss you...
