Dear Amelia,
I just saw that Jerome had passed and I already missed the services. It sounds like he did some fun things in his life. I am so glad. I wish I could give you a hug.

Jerome was one of the first clients I ever worked with. He holds such a special place in my heart. I remember going home with him for Christmas, the jokes and the water gun fights we used to share. He will live on in our hearts. So sorry to his family for their loss

Amelia and family, I have 20 and a half years of memories with JG. I will always remember him for those big eyes. He always had a story to share. He was my purpose for being there. A promise was a promise. He is forever in my heart. Thank you for sharing your son with us.
