Dear family of Jerry,
Please accept our deepest sympathy from the staff and patients at St. Michael's Cardiac Rehab. Jerry connected with all of us through his sincere nature. He genuinely cared about all of the staff and the friends he made while exercising. He always came into our department with a big smile on his face! We loved hearing Jerry's stories and we shared so many laughs over the years. Not only did he entertain us with his stories, he was equally a wonderful listener. He cared about all of us. He was so enjoyable and we will miss him every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Feeling so sad,
Maggie Sullivan R.N.

I am heartbroken to have found out that Jerry passed away! I looked forward to seeing him every other day in Cardiac Rehab, and I can't even begin to imagine what it will be like there without him now. Through all the stories and times shared, we became friends. A couple weeks ago, when I was working out there, I distinctly remember thinking to myself how just hearing Jerry's voice in that room reminded me of how it had felt being around close family growing up. When a person's voice alone means that much to you, you know you have a real connection. Jerry's kind, gentle, enthusiastic, caring, fun-loving nature set him apart, and I will always be grateful to have known himt. I offer my deepest condolences to his family, and pray that the LORD will bring peace to all of you during this difficult time. I can imagine that Reko was probably there with Jesus to greet Jerry with a tin cup full of coins and a huge hug and smile. Farewell until later dear friend...you will be missed!
