    Rest in peace Uncle Jerome. You will always be remembered as the uncle who loved to play with the nieces and nephews, often carrying us around on your shoulders during our visits at Grandma K’s.

    So terribly sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Jerome. I worked with him at Casey’s in Albertville for a couple years. He was always great to be around and always had a smart comment about the weather or a storm rolling in. I would holler back to him, “hey Jerome, we have some thunderboomers rolling in, and he would come up and watch them when he had a free moment.
