Not sure what to say?

It came as shock to hear of Jerry's passing. He was such a good friend and companion in our early years. We enjoyed the very simple things of growing up in a small town.
He would break into song at any time or moment, and sub his own words. As time passes we are reminded that death is part of life, and I am sure Jerry has found peace in a better place. God rest his soul.

I remember Jerry, in my younger years, as a funloving congenial guy always cheery and nice to be around. One of the Hubbardston gang we grew up with. All the best to the family. Sorry to miss the funeral, down south.

Uncle Jerry was a big part of wonderful childhood memories for me. He would take my siblings and me on adventures which included long bike rides and hikes. I am so sad that he has left this earth, but I know he is happy in his new heavenly adventure. Rest in peace Uncle Jerry.

Jerry always had a smile on his face and a welcoming comment to greet you. I loved to hear him sing the Irish songs when I was growing up...now, God has one more tenor in heaven!

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
