There are no words to describe the loss in this world of my sweet Daddy, Jerry. Too many unanswered questions and broken protocols every step of the way. I will discover the truth to respect and honor you. I can feel you in my heart and this gives me strength. I will take care of Mom and try to make her happy to keep your memory alive as you would have wanted.
Love your daughter, Nancy
Pop, We love and miss you so much. I always admired you and your ways. You taught me so much about music and life, and you were always there when I needed you. Throughout life's ups and downs, countless band concerts, and sporting events I always knew you were there rooting for me. I loved joking around with you and sharing music. Sometimes I would find a new song and I would think to myself, "I have to show Pop!". I would send the song straight to Nana on Facebook, because I knew she would show you in an instant. After the message sent, I would eagerly await the response - "Pop sez, this is cool!". A lot of the Michael Brecker and John Coltrane stuff rubbed off on me. You really helped me broaden my musical taste at an early age. There was always a musical bond between us and there always will be. I can't begin to summarise my 26 years of life with you by my side. There are so many years and moments I am greatly thankful for. Thanks to you, Pop. We love you.
