    Dear Rose & family,

    We send our deepest condolences to all of you. Jerry was a good neighbor, friend & mechanic. I know we appreciated all the times Jerry was there for my Dad, over the years.

    May all the good times & memories made with Jerry carry you through this difficult time.

    Gerry was a great man. He didn’t talk often, but when he did we listened. He was also one of the best mechanics in South Omaha. As teenagers we would use his garage to fix our vehicles. He would help while making fun of our crappy vehicles, but was always there to help when needed. I have a lot of fond memories of his garage and I won’t forget all of the lessons learned there.
