30 Years Ago

Willie, Robin and Andrew...I am sorry for your loss and saddened on many different levels.

Over the past 30 years I have thought about writing to Jerry and Willie to express my thankfulness for helping a young kid.  That never happened, and I now I won’t have the chance to thank him – and that stings.

What I want you to know is that your family really took me in and made me feel part of your household.  Your home was a safe place for me, and all four of you had something to do with it.  There were times when I felt that I was a PITA, but Jerry never made me feel that way, ever.

I watched the way Jerry treated his family.  The love he had for you was evident – the hugs, the patience and the understanding.  I admired him and I feel some of what I saw from him rubbed off on me.

There have been times in my adult life that I have had flashbacks.  When my wife and I bicker, I would use Jerry’s tone and my wife would giggle like Willie.  When raising my two girls and dealing with their boyfriends, I had talks with them in the manner Jerry spoke to me.

One memory I want to share is when The Freedman’s and Shapiro’s and me took a road trip to Rhode Island an went to Newport Jai-alai.  It was the first time I heard the terms “trifecta” and “quinella”.   I don’t remember anyone winning money on that trip, but it was a blast.

I wish now I had the opportunity to tell him all of this.  I don’t anymore…but I can share it with you.

Please know that after 30 years, I have not forgotten and you are still part of me.

Chris
