Just a few words that was in my mind
Calling all people to see The Passing. I traveled the way, wait for me. Take a shot in the rain, for the pain. Calling all my demons now to let me go. Wait for me. Oh it's all better now. So Lord take me someplace wonderful. Oh it's all better now. I saw the suprise in your eyes, when you seen the light of the Lord. And now you could rise. To look down on us like a Angel you are.
Thank you uncle Jerry for all your wisdom that i have learned from you. All the laughs and cries we had together. And all the wonderful family and friends you brought into my life. Quick shout out. To how you could see a beautiful woman a mile away. But ask me whose there. Lol. Love abel

My brain, my heart, and my soul are searching through ALL the memories I have of you, over and over. From feeding those crazy geese at Sloan's Lake to Getting a brew-ski at JDs. Jamming to all the oldies, cruising you all over town for a flash light. Or going to every store we could in a few hours, But especially feeding you during the holidays. You were always down to taste my creations, no matter what is was. To have you as my grandfather was truly a blessing I am so grateful for the conversations and the laughs we were able to share. Thank you so much for always being there for me, and doing all you could to help me navigate through life. I will forever keep you in my heart and never forget the amazing man you were. You endured so much in life but were always so happy and thankful. I admire your strength. I love you forever. God bless you Grampeedo!

Jer, losing a great friend is always hard but losing you is especially hard. I always looked up to you as a young kid watching you grow up as my cousin Eddie's best friend on Elliot Street and throughout the years. Playing sports, causing plenty of mischief (really good stuff), and laughing so hard to the point of crying---you were always right in the middle of it--- the ringleader. You went on to serve your country honorably in the Air Force---which by the way, was a reason that I joined the Air Force. When your health and sight began to fail not a single complaint was ever heard. You were a man of faith---which Janet and I admired immensely. You represented your name well, brother Jeronimo. You were a true warrior. You are going to be missed tremendously by friends and family but your heavy burden has been lifted off of your shoulders. Your vision is clear and you're walking with friends, family, and loved ones who have passed before us. We know that you'll be watching over the family and letting your presence be felt from time to time. Your family is our family and Janet and I will always be there for them.
We will meet again. I know you'll understand so I don't think I'm going to rush it.
Rest easy, my brother, my friend.

Jeronimo, I have a Lotta good memories through, the many years that we’ve known each other. They’re all good memories I am so sad that you had to leave us. But, I know our lord has special plans for you. I will never forget one time you try to teach my daughter Erica how to Mexican dance at Kenos and another time I pulled up to your house and you had her in your car trying to teach her drive a stick and she was only like 13 years old. I said why are you trying to teach her to drive so she could steal my car. I could go on with so many good stories good memories but, all I Gotta say is Rest In Peace My Dear Sweet Wonderful Friend. Oh and by the way you were Always A Stand Up Gentleman in my book. God Bless You until we meet again.😘❤️❤️❤️
