Although Mike and I did not know Jerome personally his Step-Daughter Colleena Stiles would tell us how they would talk on the phone cracking each other up with their sense of humor. From what I’ve been told for many years by Colleena , Jerome was a good man , a very loving husband to his wife Faye, and a man with a great sense of humor even when he wasn’t feeling well and that says a lot about his character ❤️ Colleena would tell me how Jerome got her laughing so hard so couldn’t stop and Colleena with her quick wit and her funny sense of humor would tell me how she got Jerome laughing so hard that he couldn’t stop either. That says something about their relationship and that is pretty awesome 😊 Mike and I are sending our love prayers and hugs to his wife Faye who is a super nice person and is very giving person. Faye also has that quick wit sense of humor. I suspect her daughter Colleena got that from her 🤗 My God Be With You During This Difficult Time Faye ❤️🙏🏼 Mike and I are thinking of Colleena and Brian Stiles the kids and grandkids , great grandkids , Faye and the family of Jerome Newbauer and are praying they find comfort strength and peace at this time 🙏🏼 With Sincere Sympathy , Love Mike and Dena ❤️
