Dearest Mary, Mark and Kathleen
I am so sorry to hear about Jerry. I will always remember him for Victrola records, player piano scrolls and great sense of humor!! Sincerest condolences and prayers to you all.

Dear Mary and Family,
We were saddened to see the obituary for Jerry in today's Kenosha News. You had that extra time together when Jerry fought the odds against his health problems. He was a wonderful teacher and always the first in our Jefferson Faculty to offer to help in any way he could. His smile from the front porch will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time.
Love, Mark and Sue Wilson and family
