Our Lord said, “Jerry, you’ve handled the crosses that have been set upon you with dignity and compassion for others. Take my hand and I’ll lead you to paradise where there is no pain, no suffering, only joy and the celebration of eternal life. It’s time”. And so last evening, dad was called home peacefully surrounded by family. His body was tired after he suffered a stroke a week ago. He was an amazing husband, father to all us kids, father-in-law, Grandpa and Great Grandad. Always asking about how you were doing and never complaining about his own aches and pains. He’s taught us lifes lessons with caring and compassion, although sometimes we may not have realized it at the time. A dedicated man of his faith. Dad, we will miss you dearly, but are comforted knowing you are in such a better place. We wait for the day we will all be reunited again. Love you, Dad!
