    I worked with Jerry at Morse for many years, we were on the same team. We played cards at lunch and I always loved hearing his many stories about growing up in Milwaukee! He was kind hearted and there were times we laughed and cried together. I have wonderful memories of Jerry and feel blessed to have had him in my life for so many years.
