    I owe Jerome my life. On a day when I was in real trouble, he was there for me to do a favor I had asked him for a day earlier. When he didn't hear from me, he came looking for me. I was unconscious and nearly in a coma. But because he kept his word and came to look for me, I am alive today. He loved his girls more than anything in the world. I watched him provide for them in some bad times. He was a GOOD man. RIP JEROME. I will be there for your girls.. Robert.
