    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time. I hope that through all of the sadness, you will remember the little things, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. I will cherish every memory of Uncle Jerry and his zest and passion for life. He was a wonderful man and he will be missed by all.

    Much love always,
