Dear Karen, So sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. The two of you were two of the best neighbors we ever had. Always had a great time with both of you and I loved talking sports with Jerry, even if he was a Giants fan. We remember our "hot" times together, especially the night in the hot tub, the Halloween party, and the scavenger hunt "Mrs. Kozlowski." Great memories. Love and miss you. Ron and JoAnn

I would love to see you again. Take care. I send love and hugs to all. Diane - 585 377-5526

Jerry was a lovely, funny, and caring man. I had the pleasure of working with Jerry here at St Ann's and he was always a gracious man to me. I remember being invited to his house (a long time ago) for a picnic lunch and the weather, drinks, food and company were wonderful!! I will always have fond memories of Jerry. with deepest sympathy, Mollie jones

Karen, Jay, Sherri, Joe and family, I remember watching Jerry mow the lawn in his shorts, high light of a stay at home mom's day! One time he left the mower running to go into the house and get a drink, he thought it was in "park", well I watched it travel across the street into Davdison's flower bed. We always had a good laugh over that one. I think that the year he coached the softball team is the only time we came in first place. Thanks Jerry. I am sorry he is gone so soon. You are in my prayers love and miss you all Barb Bunce(Miller)
