    I always thought of Jerry as a grandfather, his daughter Robin is my godmother and my mothers bestfriend. He was always smiling and telling jokes. Just a very love man. Love you Jerry!

    Jerry was a wonderful, caring man. He was a kind and thoughtful father, grandfather and husband. Every time I saw him he had a smile on his face! He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

    You’re with the Lord now. No more sickness. No more pain. Your presence will be missed by many, but I know you’re happy basking in God’s glory. Rest in Paradise Mr. Probst… May Lord bless your loved ones with peace and assurance that you’re happy…

    I only met you once, but the way I saw my aunt and cousin embrace the beautiful way you showed your love to them, I knew you were sent to them from God himself. Thank you God for sending such a loving man into their lives.

    My dad was what a dad should be. He worked hard to provide for his family. He provided love, support and guidance. He took care of us when we were sick, listened when we needed to talk and rejoiced in our happiness. He was our superman. He shared his knowledge and wisdom from his life even though many times I was hard headed and had to learn the hard way. He taught me that all men don’t leave you.I can’t count how many times in my younger years I called him and said I ran out of gas can you come and pick me up please. He came to rescue me each time. His love was unconditional. He dreamed big and worked hard to achieve. His grandchildren and great grandchildren adored him. He could tell such silly stories and be so fun. I will miss him turning the music loud and dancing, his whistling, singing and his silly yawning. I will miss the way everything felt like it was going to be ok when he gave me a big hug. I miss the way he loved and cared for my mom. I just miss HIM and all he was.

    It’s a few minutes before the New Year and I’m finding it difficult to let go of 2017. My heart is still shattered. It will always be the last time I heard your voice, held your strong hands and looked into your beautiful blue eyes. It will always be the last time I called out the word “dad” and heard your response. There are so many things I’ve been able to do in my life because I stood on your shoulders. It’s very easy to be brave when your hero is just a phone call away. My world feels a lot different now, but some things remain the same, I know you’re there even though I can’t see you. I know I’ll always be thankful that you’re my dad. I love you beyond
    measure and will miss you every second of every day until I
    see you again……on a heavenly golf course, whistling a happy tune…I know right where to find you dad.
