Jerry, I miss you so much. You are such a great big brother. Even though you loved to pick on me, you were always there and protected me. I remember playing in our yard with the neighborhood kids playing hide and seek and tag in the dark, we used to do that all the time. I also remember when I was in 10th grade when that boy said to you he liked me, you ran right up to me and said, see that guy there, he really likes you, that poor boy was so embarrassed. I really missed you when you moved to KC. I was glad I was able to come down and visit every now and then with Mom and Dad and by myself sometimes. I'm also glad we were with you when God took you home. I wish you were here but you're with Mom and in no more pain. I love you so much, your little sister Diana

Dad, we didn’t have much of a relationship for a long time. After waiting a lifetime for your sobriety it finally happened 3 years ago. Only then was I ever so slowly ready to let you back into my life.. You were so excited when I told you I was pregnant with Morgan. You sent so many things for her. You were so exited to come to Florida to see her after she was born in January. You wanted to move here to be close to us. Then just 3 short months later, you were told you had cancer. I prayed it wasn’t bad. I prayed for a miracle to cure your cancer. Morgan needs her Grandpa, I said. We finally became closer than we had been since I was a child. We talked on the phone & FaceTimed almost nightly so you could see Morgan. We visited you in June after your surgery, when the coughing started. We came to visit again in September after you told us the cancer had metastasize to your lungs without a cure. I thought that might be the last time we spent with you & it was.. After 38 years I finally developed a relationship with you that I had hoped for my whole life. It took cancer for me to realize how much I love you, Dad. You are gone too soon. We miss you.

My friend, we have been through a lot during the last 19 some odd years. We have shared so many memories both good and bad with conversations and yes even arguments on too many topics to remember, however we cared for one another regardless. Dart tournaments will sure never be the same. There is or was, truly no one like you in my life and I am going to miss you. Give Alben a hug for me and you two watch over me. Love you.

After living with you for the past 7 years you became more then a friend you became apart of our family, we traveled together, played darts, sang lots of karaoke together, shared good time, shared bad tims and even shared a beer or two. You are and always will be a huge part of our family and you will truly be missed.

Jerry, you were always an amazing friend and an extended part of our family. From spending Christmas with us, jumping on the trampoline with the kids, coming over for bbq’s and birthdays, karaoke, you were always a part of our family. You have no idea how much you will be missed and we love you always. Go rest high on that mountain and I am sure Alben is very pleased to see you. Rest in eternal peace our beloved Jerry, until we meet again.
