So very sorry to hear of Jerry’s death. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
I remember Jerry mowing the lawn and his singing some beloved opera songs.

May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. I am Jonathan Bilmes . My grandmother was Nellie Suffness, Sally Miller's sister. Jerry and Sylvia attended all our family simchas in Middletown, NY at Temple Sinai. They were also at my wedding in 1983. I am sorry we lost touch. Jerry was a mensch and made a big effort to attend our simchas which was much appreciated.

My wife, Barbara, and I live in Israel as do two of our kids and 3 grandkids. I am wondering if any family is living here so we can get in touch?

May Jerry's Neshama have an aliyah.
