  1. My sweet Uncle you will be dearly missed. I will always cherish your bear hugs. Nobody could hug like you. Your laughter and sparkling eyes always reminded me of my Father. Your cooking was out of this world. I know that you are at peace and teaching the angels in heaven how to polka. Kiss my Father and Mother for me. I can say that I have so many memories to treasure and that I have been truly blessed to have had a man like you to call my “Uncle Jerry”. Until we see each other again……save a dance for me. Deb
