Rest In Paradise Uncle Jerry! No more suffering. As I am writing this, I have tears running down my face. I can’t believe it. I will always treasure the memories I made with you. When Kevin and I were dating, we visited Uncle Jerry and Aunt Carolyn in California. He took the time to teach me how to paint a rose and a mountain scene. I always wore his painting smock. Every time him and Aunt Carolyn visited us in Wisconsin, whether it was 1 year, 5 years or 10, he would always chuckle and say, “Every time I wear my paint smock since you wore it, it reminds me of you. I can still smell your perfume.” The same time we were out there Uncle Jerry and Aunt Carolyn took us out to a Chinese restaurant. Uncle Jerry knew I didn’t like Chinese food so he pulled out a roast beef sandwich in a baggie from his pocket. We all laughed. I am so glad that Kevin and I were able to visit Uncle Jerry, Aunt Carolyn, Mark & Sally last September and celebrate their anniversary. You were a very intelligent man. I will always keep you in my heart. Even though you were Kevin’s uncle, you were also MY uncle! I love and miss you! 😢

True friends are hard to find. Jerry was certainly a true friend! He always seen the silver lining. We liked to joke with each other. He was a very intelligent and creative man. He loved to share ideas.
We cherished his friendship.
