Not sure what to say?

Been a year, dude. Lots has gone on in your absence. Miss ya still. I'll talk to ya later.

Life without my best friend is like a long road leading to nowhere that passes nothing of interest along the way.

I cant remember ever not knowing you. You were my unofficial big brother since I was 3. A bright sweet light has dimmed. You will be remembered forever in the hearts of those who knew you. You were loved more than you could have ever imagined.

Sorry to hear this and my condolences especially to Vicky. Jerry was a good employee, a great artist, and most of all a nice caring person. His sense of humor and funny slant on things made me smile...goodbye Jerry.

Life will forever be a little darker and a little sadder with the loss of your sweet, loyal and loving presence. You were my unofficial big brother since I was 3 and the kids and I will remember you always with a smile and a fun story. You were loved more than you could have ever known.

Jerry and friends, 1993

I have a lot of great memories of Jerry from my college years. So long my friend.

See you on the other side buddy. Ill miss you,here.

Goodbye Neighbor:
Always a wae and a smile to greet us. we will miss you. Your friends miss you already and send you all the love you gave out to others. Bless you Jerry,
Pattie & john Nolan-kowalski
