Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Kuzniar family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere sympathies. It is sad to learn that you’re mourning the loss of your dear loved one Jerome, and it saddens our God even more. No doubt, you have many fond memories that will resurface at times. Know that Almighty God has memories as well. With full confidence, you can take comfort in knowing that he longs to restore perfect life to all those safe in his loving memory. (John 5:28,29) You will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  2. Aloha
    Sorry to hear the news of Jerry’s passing. Hope that the time you had together will give you the strength and happiness to cherish all that you had together. For me, Jerry was that person who I shared so many many hours of growing up doing trivial things that filled our days with memories and fun. Don’t know if you remember me, but I was fortunate to stop and see you and Jerry about 6 years ago on my return trip from Fla. to Ohio. We had a great time than reminiscing and he seemed to be happy and content. I hope you will be able to do the same as you hold on to the memories of a life worth celebrating.
