    Dear Susan, Phillip and David We were very sad to hear about your Dad. He and your Mom were great neighbors for so many years as we watched all of you grow up. Please know that we are thinking of you at this difficult time. Sincerely, Ken and Barbara Birkland

    Jerry was very special. I started in building 3 at Kodak in Bob Wilson’s lab and Jerry was there. We knew your parents for 50 years, they were very special. In retirement, Jerry was in the lunch group, it was always great to see him and he will be missed.
