Dear Judy and girls,

Our thoughts are with you all. Jerry was a family man. He use to call my parents just to talk and share jokes with my Dad. He made sure to stay in touch with my them after his parents passed. My parents had pictures of his girls and Jeremy on their wall (this was before Facebook). Thank you Jerry and Judy for your love. I hope you can find comfort that they are all together watching over us. The missing never goes away, but I am glad it doesn’t because it keeps them with us. Love from your Clancy cousins, Maureen, Tommy, Marianne, Bill and Lorraine.

Dear Jackie and Bobby,
You are both in our thoughts too. We love you.
