Wonderful man.
His work as a comedian will stand forever.
But I think he will be best remembered for his years of telethon work raising funds for the less fortunate.

Rest in peace, dear Jerry.
A kitty keeps loneliness away.
More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.

Loved watching his telethons each year for Muscular Dystrophy. I would take my jar of pennies and spare change and drop them in the bin at the local TV station--channel 3 WCIA Champaign/ Urbana Illinois. He was very New York and it always seemed to connect me with the city of my birth and occasional visits in my very young years on into college.

I held several fund raisers and presented prizes during his telethons. He really touched me when he said, don't give until it hurts. Just give until if feels good.

RIP Jerry.

I told my stepmom about his death Sunday. She stopped what she was doing and teared up and cried for a while. She really liked him and what he did with his life.
