    Dear Kathy…You did a wonderful job taking care of Jerome. I thank you for letting me be involved for do many years. Jerome adored you. Don’t ever forget that. Like Greg, he is now free of this awful disease, has no confusion and no pain any longer. Hope this gives you the same peace I experience. I learned much about faith from Jerome in the early years. His approach was quiet but matter of fact, and it ran deep. May your faith support you in the coming days.

  2. Wayne Flood says:

    We first met you and Jerome over thirty years ago and continued to know and work with each other almost all
    of those years. I am deeply saddened to hear of Jerome’s passing. We always appreciated his quiet determination and his complete depth of character.
    I’m sure Jerome has a heavenly reward and God’s blessed gift of eternity.
    So sorry for your loss

    You guys meant a lot to me growing up. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. There are way too many cliché that could be used here and in time they would be true, but just remember that there are others thinking of you and your family. You are all very special to us and you will be kept in our prayers and our hearts.

    Dear Kathy, I was so sorry to see that your Jerome had passed away. I hope that he was not ill for an extended time, as that is such a hard time. But, we just do it don’t we. Wayne’s health was totally gone, and I have faith that his death was a blessing for him, and I pray the same for Jerome. You are also in my prayers….as you will have a new road to travel.
