Dear Raso Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Gerry was very dear to us. One of our fondest memories is when we would bring Jake and Sophie to the beach as babies and Gerry would always come over to squeeze their toes and play peek-a-boo. Our thoughts are with you.

I really enjoyed the few occasions I got to spend with Jerry and Chris. There was the time Adele and I just dropped in on them in Holmdel on our way back from the marina; at Alix's debut performance of the McMichael concerto; in Loveladies when I dropped by to go swimming. I am so sorry for your loss. Jerry was SUCH a character and wonderful man. Best wishes, Connie Barrett
