Uncle Jerry was a great person and will definitely be missed. While his life was not always easy, he always made it clear how much he cared for his family. Nothing but fond memories of how he treated me. I’ll miss his sense of humour and laugh, as well as all the stories from his youth when he was more than a bit mischievous. Rest in peace.
Thank you Larry. Good memories.
