Jerry and Mary were our neighbors when Tommy first started his Law practice in DQ in 1972 and continued to be our friends and ‘neighbors’ no matter where we lived. They always, always welcomed the kids into their home and arms and were first on the spot for any need. He and his friendly smile will be so missed. Send my love to Mary Agnes and the boys. Have lots of great memories with them. So sorry for your loss but I know he’s making some good deals in heaven about now!

We rented from them about 8-9 years ago and i have to say they were some of the best landlords ever and i regret moving out of their property. they invited us over to their home and i ended up feeling like one of their kids because they treated us so good. Mary (n rest of family) my thoughts n prayers are with you during this difficult time!
