Dear Tina, Mary Jo, Sara, Andrea, Brian, & the COMPLETE family, We have lost a wonderful guy with a very big heart who absolutely did a beautiful job at decorating our altar at St.Michael ‘s. His expertise will be missed with his talent of making our church look absolutely stunning.
Our thoughts and prayers goes out to the family especially Mary Jo & Sara Bonaquist who has been his side kick for a long time. May the beautiful memories that he shared with you all be etched into your hearts forever. Joe & I will certainly miss our great conversations with Uncle Jerry! The heavens have gained a beautiful angel today. Until we meet again, rest in peace my friend!
RIP Jerry, many laughs and good times. You earned your crown
My deepest condolences to family. God Bless.
I am saddened by this news, Jerome was a very good friend and employer. My prayers go out to the family may God Bless you and comfort you in this time of loss.
I just saw Jerome a few weeks ago with Mary Jo. Always had a smile and a wave to everyone.
His vision and talent will be greatly missed.
My sincere condolences to you and your family. He was such a nice and personable man. He made the church beautiful for all the holidays. He will be missed. Prayers to the family.
My Sincere Condolences to all the Family. Jerome , Joe Wasco, Andy Peters, myself and my sister Patrica Grexa Calvin served on several committees together over the years. The last Gorgeous Christmas Decorations & Santa’s Big House in Greenville. were because of these people. Jerome and Joe would also Decorate, the Country Club or the Elks club for the annual Hospital Ball to raise money for the Hospital. I would walk in and you literally thought you were in New York, City. Truly Stunning. I also, remember watching Jerome make flower arrangements. We would be having half hour serious conversations about an up and coming event. He could carry a smart conversation while knocking out 6 arrangements at the same time. I assure you, it was a true talent. He will be sadly missed. A true loss as a friend to many and a tragic loss to the community. RIP.
So sorry for your loss Jerome was a very kind man
Sending prayers and my deepest love to you all. I’m so sorry that I won’t be able to be there in person to pay my respects, but please know that my heart is there with you in this time of loss.
