  1. I saw Dorothy’s obituary in the paper Jerry, felt bad for you and want to offer my condolences. I saw Mark Mancuso at a Red Wings game this summer and he was excited to tell me he had recently run into you. I immediately got a mental picture of you with your trademark smile! Here’s hoping that smile remains part of you for many years to come Jerry. All the best to you.
