Memories Jerry's handle on the CB radio was Banty Rooster

When I lost my dad last year, my Uncle Jerry stepped in and was the rock that my mom and I needed. I am confident that when he was greeted by my dad on the other side, my dad thanked him for looking out for us.

I am saddened by Jerry's passing. He was always friendly and kind to the Iroquois students and faculty, and always willing to help out. My condolences to his family - you will be in my prayers.

Jerry was a great friend to many of us who grew up in the 50's and 60's around Delaware Avenue, where we would meet at his home to share an interest in motorcycles, cars and just hanging out. He was so many things: a kind and generous man who loved life, family, and friends; one who would always help out others in need and share whatever he had; a naturally gifted mechanic who could (and did) fix anything, including an Oldsmobile transmission that he rebuilt in his kitchen; and someone with a great sense of humor who could laugh at misfortune. We were blessed to have him in our lives. Sympathies to all his family and loved ones.

Gerald Case was my papa {grandpa}. I loved him dearly, and so did everyone else that had him in their lives. It is very hard for me to know that he is gone. He will NEVER be forgotten and will always be loved. Thank you all for coming to the funeral. My sympathy goes out to everyone else.

Brian and family,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. It's been a very long time since I've seen you, Robin or the rest of the family, but I want you to know I'm thinking of you all. Your dad was always so good to me and for the few years that we were together, he welcomed me into the family as if I were his own child. He is fondly remembered in my heart.
My sympathies to each of you.

Here is a poem that Breanne wrote after she returned from Dads funeral.  I guess she has his thing for poetry.... Brian

Draw Near to Death

 Soon I will be there Darkness galore
And the light at the end of the tunnel shines ever so bright
 First, I feel the hand of death grip around me firmly
I lose my breath,  My heart stops beating  My spirit leaves,
  As I close my eyes I strap in for the ride
  As I reach heaven  The daylight shines brightly,
  Then I know I'm where I belong.

Breanne Case

2/23/05 It's been a week since I heard the news. Family and friends gathered to pay their respects. It was great seeing everyone again, sorry it had to be on a sad occasion.  I created this page for my uncle, to keep his memory alive. You may visit here as often as you like. Any photos or memories are welcomed. Only love is listed here.

2/26/05 One week ago today we said goodbye. 
It seems like hours since we heard your laugh and saw you smile.
Our heart feels the missed beat, Our eyes cloud up a while
But deep down we know you are watching and will make everything alright.

3/2/05 Jerry was the one person who helped me stay alive for a whole year. He was here to help me get through the loss of my husband who passed away a year ago Feb 04. Hope Jerry meets him on the other side, and tells him all he did for me and don't forget the month vacation out west to see all your friends.

Took some flowers up for Jerry. 4-  16 - 2005 
4/16/05 Two months - a mere 60 days ago  Jerry was talking about going west to the fun in the sun.
Today the sun shines bright and we remember the plans that he made. Anna Mae and family are going to take that trip west in June and take some memories of Jerry with them.  Remember Jerry is without pain and at peace now.

Third month anniversary and they laid his stone today.
Wherever you are
Wherever you may be
Your are still here with us
If only in memory.  
Third month anniversary and they laid his stone today.
It says

Gerald Case was my grandmaís brother. Her name is Anna Mae Fuller. She loves Gerry very much! They traveled all over the place. They had quite a time! It was sort of journey. I didnít go, but I heard all about itÖ It was wonderful. I wish I had gone. But I had school!! But when they got back, I was sooooooo happy! But now since he has passed away, I am sad. But he is not really gone; he is still in our hearts. I love him as much as my grandmother. But she was with him the most, before he passed. But it is ok now. She is still having sorrow, but she knows that he is with my grandpa, Bill Fuller, her husband. And they are taking care of each other. I hope that he is happy, because now he is in a better place, where he wont have no pain, no more! And we understand that, and we miss him, very very very much.

Merry Christmas  Well, its that time of year. The holidays are upon us. And holidays are all about spending time with your loved ones. This year is extremely difficult because it is the first Christmas without my father. And even though I have lived in Georgia the past several years, and have not been able to spend the holiday with dad. I always spoke with him on the telephone, even if it was for a short period of time. And every year I could picture all of us kids surrounding the tree as dad passed out the gifts that Santa Claus brought for us that year. And the distance between us didn't seem quite as far. I know dad is up there watching over us now. So I wanted to say Merry Christmas dad. I love you and I miss you!!! 
Love,
your youngest son, Patrick

In Loving Memory Of
Gerald G. Case
Feb. 11, 1933 - Feb 16, 2005

ALWAYS

Papa's in a better place
A smile still upon his face
Forever spreading laughter and cheer
Unhappiness, his only fear
So don't you let your Papa down
Never replace that smile with a frown
When times are looking rough, get smart,
Find Papa deep inside your heart.
He'll give you guidance to pull you through
Your Papa's always here with you.
Angela M. Kehl

Loved and Missed by
Your Family

Iím not sure why this Christmas seems to be hitting me harder than last year but it is.  I have read through all of the memories posted here and while tears are rolling down my cheeks, I am still smiling.  Patís memories of Christmas are just perfect.  All of us kids, up way too early, and Dad sitting under that tree.  He shouted out the name and literally threw the gift at us!  Those are very happy memories.  I miss him very much and wish there was a way to let him know how much he is missed and loved by us all.
