Send Condolence

My deep sincere condolences to Ruth and to the rest of Jerry's beloved family. I met my late husband, Stanley Holtzman, on a blind date with Jerry....arranged by Sheila Roth his cousin and a gal I went to TAHS with....After a movie, we went to LaBarb's in Monroeville and it was there I met Stanley who followed us from a movie in town. We all remained good friends for many years and the Hubby & Wife teams took some local trips together and the old "Severons(?)" from Peabody played cards. May you all recall the good times and memories of Jerry's life.... together
