    My Uncle Jerry was an amazing, loving, humor-filled man with such great musical talent. Jonny, I will miss him greatly, but know he is where he wants to be, by his wife, Aunt Joan. When she passed, he relied on his beautiful labradors for love and comfort. He was cherished by his neighborhood community and even one of Jonny’s high school friends, an officer, would clear the snow for him and many other things. He loved playing with the group at the senior center. And we took him to his favorite brunch place, The Silo, a few times. He loved that. I have few, but cherished memories of this loving man. I was his little Pammy. God bless you and your family, Jonny. We mourn together and I am here for you, dear cousin.
