Condolence & Memory Journal

My deepest condolences to Aunt Truus, my cousins, Michael, Danny and Tanja. I will always remember uncle Jerry as the school photographer, we got school pictures of my cousins and mom and I would reminisce. I don't remember ever visiting often of never but we always had him and his family in our hearts.
Love to you always. Elly

I worked for Jerry when he owned Indiana School Pictures and he was such a great boss and a wonderful man, my sympathies to his family as I'm sure he will be greatly missed.

He was the best "Boss" I ever had. I will never forget how he would say " I'll buy if you will fly" when it was lunch time. Great man who had a smile ready for everyone. He will be missed

I have nothing but the fondest memories of Uncle Jerry. Las Vegas; family get togethers, area casino visits with my folks (Doris and Henry) and his outgoing personality. A life well lived! Gone too soon but always remembered. Love to you Aunt Truus and cousins Mike, Dan and Tanja.
