Thinking of my cousins today on the loss of their father. Becky, Bubba and Jareth. I'm grateful you had time with Uncle Jerome and I know how proud he must be of all of you. He loved you very much. Praying he is resting in eternal peace in Heaven in God's shining arms. I know he is with our grandparents, dad, Allyson, Uncle Michael waiting at the dinner table for us all to join them. Love you guys.

Jerome was my first cousin. I've know him since we were kids. He was the most kind, easy-going and giving person I knew. He was an excellent carpenter and Jack-of-all trades. When my mother died he built a monument for her ashes to be placed on my father tomb in the LaBorde plot in the Mansura cemetery. Thanks for allowing me to share this memory of Jerome. To Darlene and family, no words can bring enough comfort to relieve the hurt in your hearts. In some way, you can take solace in the memories you shared with Jerome. Our deepest sympathy and prayers are extended to you.
