This letter is written for all those who helped make a difficult time somewhat easier.
My husband, Gerald Celecki, passed away on Oct. 14, 2015. “Bear,” as he was affectionately known, died suddenly while doing the job he loved. Jerry always said that I was the love of his life, but I knew that I shared him with his other love … being a firefighter.
Upon his death, that love was returned in abundance, as I have never experienced so much love and compassion from so many people. For that I am eternally grateful, and I send my appreciation to the people of South Amboy, the firefighters and the police officers who participated in honoring Jerry at his funeral. The fellowship I experienced from these wonderful people will never be forgotten.
If everyone showed this much care and concern, to quote the late, great Louis Armstrong, “What a wonderful world” this would be.
Again, my heartfelt thanks for your sympathy and support.
