Saddened and shocked by your passing. I was proud to read your obit and see you experienced a full life with varied interests. Your death reminds how previously short life can be. An old high school buddy and one with good character, quiet but with depth.ran into Jerome in Concord a few years ago. Always thought we'd connect again. Hope there's good stuff for you in the next journey. RIP Jerome!
