Though our respective families lived in NJ and Rochester, NY, cousin Jerry, or as he was know in the family here as Sonny, was a great influence in my life as the older brother I never had. He was always cheerful and giving and he taught me many things over the years about life and our mutual love of automobiles. I will miss him greatly. The picture here was from a visit to Rochester in 2007, during which Sonny wanted to see Niagara Falls for the first time.
