Who Knew?

About that winter day in 1984 when you became our neighbor

We would shortly realize that you were not just a neighbor, you were part of our extended family

That you would be Santa's helper each year, spreading joy to the little ones in the neighborhood

That you would be here on Saturdays in the garage sharing a beer or two and many funny stories

How fortunate we were to have you in our lives

How very much we will miss you and your one liners

May you rest in peace. We love you. Mike and Donna

Love, Loretta, CarolAnn, Regina &Michael, Josep

Dear Auntie Mary, Gerald and Kevin,

We are heartbroken that Uncle Jerry has passed away and we are so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jerry was like a Dad to our family. We will miss seeing him and talking to him and the good laughs we all had together. I still remember the fun we had playing football in the middle park back in the Bronx and staying at your house in Lake Carmel while Uncle Jerry grilled up those tube steaks as he called them for all the kids! He had a wonderful life with you here on earth and now he is watching over everyone from heaven.

With All Our Love & Kisses,

Regina, Michael, Anthony & Joseph

T.G., Sue, Timothy, and Matthew Henry
