Sunday, January 14, 2018Goodbye Cousin, I will always think of you as the young and handsome guy who sang and played the guitars so beautifully and who drove all the way down the shore to see me. Now you join the band of our fathers and all of the music will be celestial. My heartfelt condolences to everyone in your family: Geri, Chris, Mark, Roseanne, they will miss you so. Our time here on earth is brief. Until we will meet again, go with God. Dorothy

Saturday, January 13, 2018Joseph’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope. jw.org/finder?pub=w14&issue=20140101&wtlocale=E&srcid=share

Friday, January 12, 2018To the family of Gerry My name is Sally Scotti and I worked with Gerry at O'Connor's in the 70's and 80's Gerry was a real good man and a kind soul. Always the gentlemen and a lot of fun to work with. Sometimes a little quirky, who could ever forget that fringed suede jacket? Rest in peace my friend and may you always be surrounded by the music you love. Love Sally

Friday, January 12, 2018Unc, We will miss your stories and life lessons. I had the privilege of studying guitar with you when I was still a youth. You taught me much of the standard repertoire from the Chaccone, Leyenda, and Alhambra to the Villa-Lobos Etudes and Preludes. While the study of guitar might not have always been at the forefront of my life, it has always been there when I needed it. We worked together for many years, and we (along with Kikih, and once with Uncle Tom) even saw Sinatra three times together. I remember one time when we were recording Bach at your house you yelled at the kids (they couldn’t hear him) playing in the street “get that @@@!!! noisy wagon out of here (it was actually a BigWheel). The birds were chirping, and then we laughed at the irony of us trying to record such calming, beautiful music. And the stories you would tell, of when you hung out with Paul Simon in NYC, met Segovia, Bob Dylan (who said to you “the weather is”), and your playing with Ritchie Havens. There was also “One Eye and the Giant”, “Tom and Jerry Attempt to Climb the North Plainfield Church Tower” and a Harry story (“What Happened to Your Eyes!)… I also remember my mother telling me how you would cough in the movie theatre when opening a beer. While your loss is insurmountable, I am comforted knowing that your heart, spirit and influence will be with us always, and that you suffer no more. I’m sure you are now with George, Harry and other loved ones (including Bene, and all of our animals). Until we meet again. Love Always, Tu Neff (Jeffrey Wesley)

Thursday, January 11, 2018To the family of Jjoseph Blumetti Please accept my sincere condolences. I have taken comfort knowing that God . . . will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain.”—Revelation 21:3, 4 The Bible, however, holds out a much different hope. As we have previously noted, the Scriptures indicate that it is possible to be reunited with your dead loved one in the near future, not in an unknown heaven but right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. And at that time humans will have the prospect of enjoying perfect health, and they will never have to die again. ‘But surely that is wishful thinking!’ for some may say words of encouragement please go to JW.org Sincerely, Roberta

Wednesday, January 10, 2018Although the time our paths crossed was comparatively small, the impression you have made on our hearts and in our lives is immeasurable. Your bravery and optimism is hard to fathom in light of the challenges that you faced on a daily basis. You inspired a younger generation with your belief in them and their abilities as both artists and human beings. I know that there is a special place for you in heaven and hope that you are surrounded in love and peace. God bless you Joe, you are forever in our thoughts. Love the Gittleman family.

Wednesday, January 10, 2018Jerry and I worked at O Connor's all through the seventies.....it was a spirited and unique collection of personalities and Jerry was one of the most unforgettable characters I have ever known. We shared a love of Jersey diners and would often go out for eggs after a night of partying........for some strange reason however Jerry had been banned from the Scotchwood and the Riviera on Route 22. We were refused service by the crazy Greek owner of the Scotchwood one night and he threw us out.....I asked Jerry why he was banned and he simply said....."it's a long story Bill". On another occasion at (again) a diner up in Stirling we were harassed by a group of rednecks who took offense at Jerry's long hair and his hideous ( sorry Jerry ) suede fringe jacket. When they threatened to kick our asses as they sat in their car Jerry took out a gun from his glove compartment and proceeded to scare the hell out of these idiots and they sped off with I am sure wet or worse underwear. I could not believe he had pulled a gun on them but then Jerry told me to relax and showed me it was just a plastic kids toy........like I said.......he was a character. He took his roles in the restaurant business as seriously as he did his music. I will miss his loyalty, his sense of humor and his intellect. I regret I will not be in town on Sunday for the service so let me express my condolences to your family here.........I am sure he and his pal George the Greek are sharing a laugh and a beer up in Heaven right now!
