    candle 8One of my favorite memories of Grandpa was from when I was really little. I remember my older sister, Rachel, and I were over at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, and we were listening to a record (which I guess shows just how long ago this was) of some songs from Sesame Street. Rachel and I were singing and dancing along to it, and when Grandpa heard us, he came in and starting dancing, too! He and Grandma were always so supportive – from cheering us on at basketball and soccer games to coming to concerts and marching band competitions, from helping with college books to hosting countless birthday dinners and Christmases – they were grandparents that were present and made a truly positive impact on my childhood and who I am as an adult today. To the Grandpa who took me fishing, who saved me when I got stuck climbing the tree in the backyard, and who would dance to songs sung by Elmo just to make my sister and me laugh – you are loved and missed dearly. I know you are with me always, and thank you for the family that you helped build.

    Rest In Peace Jerry. I used to babysit for you fifty years ago . I am one of the Hayes girls who lived down Valli Lane. Lots of good times and memories from the good old days. If there is something I can do please let me know

    I worked for Jerry in the 70’s-80’s as a carpenter. He was one of the nicest men I’ve ever met and the best boss I ever had. My condolences to his family.
