    Prayers and condolences out to all of the Kramer Family.


  4. I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Jerry. He was such a nice guy and will be missed. I met Jerry 15 yrs ago with his partner of 15 years my sister Bobbi Brown. They loved to do puzzles together and sit outside. He talked about his love of boats and gave my son many tips. I’m so glad I had a chance to visit Bobbi and Jerry last May in Florida. They lived on a golf course and Jerry loved to watch the golfers. They went through Covid and hurricane Ian together and his recent hospital stays. I’m so sorry for your loss Bobbi.


  5. He will be missed. We had corvettes an Boats and great times.


  6. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It was so much fun getting to know all of you while entertaining Rose at Lakemed. Such an amazing family. I am blessed having you in my life. RIP my friend.


  7. Deepest sympathy to the family and to Bobbi his devoted caregiver of many years.


  8. I am so sorry for your loss. Jerry and Bobbi hosted a 80th Birthday Party for our twin sister Mothers, over 11 years ago. Jerry’s beautiful home and Bobbi special touch made it a wonderful day. My husband Terry and Jerry shared the same Birthday. Bobbi and I ( her cousin) would talk over their similarities and They loved to talk about politics. Jerry will be missed by his family, but especially by Bobbi.

    My deepest condolences to the Kramer
    I hung around with Jerry when we were teenagers. Visited with Jerry and his mom and pop at their basement print shop and later at their print store. My spouse [Cecilia] and I spent many nights playing cards [until 2 AM] with Jerry and Jackie. What fun we had.
    together. Although we haven’t seen each other for over 50 years. He was always in my memory for all the time we spent together.


  11. My condolences to the Kramer family. Jerry was always a sweet and kind man to me. I enjoyed the times we all had at his home in Mentor around the campfire. I will always have good memories of our parties together. Sending my love to all!!!

    The Fire Goddess!
