Dad died just as Facebook was exploding into the American online consciousness. Yes, he had a Facebook page, and a few dozen Facebook friends already. Some left messages for him just after his death.
I've been cleaning up Dad's Facebook page prior to shutting it down. So I want to take time to recognize some greetings left on his Facebook wall.
From Daniel O'Connell: Jerry, I will never forget you: your smile, your questions, your deep & gravelly voice, the shy and quiet love you had for so many things. You were a mentor to so many of us. If to live in hearts that love means a degree of immortality, than you have gone above and beyond that. May your widow find solace & comfort in the deep knowledge of how many lives you have touched. See you on the other side, brother.
From Doug Jones: Via con Dios, Jerry.
From Valerie Mapstone Ackerman: Condolences to the family.
Thanks to these people for their condolences at Dad's Facebook page.
