Not sure what to say?

Jerry was my cousin on his Dad’s side (brother Carl my dad). He was larger than life and had an infectious smile and laughter. We spent many a Christmas Eve Swedish holiday at my grandma and grandpa Graf’s house. His nickname Punjab was perfect and described his fun loving nature. I am sure he will be missed by family and friends but know he is happily reunited with his wife Mary Ellen.

It was a beautiful mass

My brother Jerry was the best! When we were younger he taught me how to dance and have fun. Most of all he tolerated the annoying little girl who would follow him around trying to decode the secret messages that were done in invisible ink and plotting how to enter his fort which had a big sign, “No Girls Allowed”. I think of you all the time brother.
Love, Jane

Jerry and I were inseparable growing up as brothers. Life was attacked with abandonment seeking fun and adventure and the ability to annoy most adults. I shall miss you forever but the memories will always live in my heart. Until we meet again.
Love, Jim
