Bethanie - so sorry to read of your dad's death. I grew up just a block north of where your mom lived in Syracuse and remember you from your days at GCCC. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please share my sympathy with Bill.

Bethanie, such a huge loss for you, I know how much you loved your Dad. I will always remember Jerry as the guy who lived for you and the fire department! His sense of humor always made my day, I will miss that.
