My husband who's name also happens to be Jerry (who is deceased as of 2011) and I had many happy and warm memories of meals shared and time spent together with Blanche and Jerry after our Son, Bob, married their daughter, Tina back in Brunswick, Ohio.
Our relationship grew through the years as children grew up, married, moved, and as we got older and retired and moved
I'll never forget Blanche's Spaghetti and Meat Ball dinners and sharing her home-made Christmas Cookies during our Holiday visits back in Brunswick where we actually lived a "stones throw" away from each other.
Even after both families moved to Florida 3 hours away from each other...there was always a cup of coffee waiting for me when I would visit Blanche.
Blanche may have escaped her earthly bonds physically but the memories we have of her will always be with us.

Our deepest sympathies for the loss of your wife and mother. She was such a kind, gentle, and loving person. We will never forget her. Many happy childhood memories at Uncle Jerry and Aunt Blanche's house in Brunswick. Always felt welcome and loved at their home. May she rest in peace for eternity with the Lord. God bless all of you.
