Dear Betty & family
Sorry I wasn't able to attend the service for Jerome as I don't drive anymore & couldn't make it. He was a special person & always had nice things to say about everyone. My condolences & prayers are with you at this time. Please take care.

I will always remember the wonderful couple who made sure the couple's golf at Conestoga Golf Club was extra special. Thanks to Jerry and Betty.
