Dad, I'm so going miss you. You were ALWAYS there for me everytime I called and just needed your words of wisdom. I could call you anytime of day and you would always talk. You meant the world to me and was the best Dad anyone could want. I was so selfish when you left because I wasn't ready for you to leave. I love you Dad and I know your not suffering anymore, but you leaving shattered my heart......I love you Dad.

Jerome, I will remeber your smile, the fact that you never met a stranger, and you always had a kind word for everyone.
