My deepest condolences go out to the wilderness family. Jerome was a fine man always happy never had anything bad to say about anyone. He was a highly intelligent individual that was good at anything he put his mind to. I got to know Jerome pretty well over the years and had many conversations with him about many topics and he was very versed and I always learned something from him. It is a great loss to many people that loved and valued his company.
