    Dear Housers,
    I was so surprised to hear about Jed. I have so many fond memories of him and 6 south. You really were my second family. I am truely sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace. He's probably sharing a heavenly cigarette withT Burke and Chip right now.

    To Jerry's family and friends,

    Although it was so very long ago, Jerry (Jed), Noel (Ned) and the rest of the Houser family, was a big part of our family growing up and they were very often over our house and us over theirs! Jerry was such a sweet natured kid and one of my older brother, Barry's, best friend! Lots of wonderful memories of him! So very sorry for your loss! May the memories and love that you have, give you comfort and strength during this very sad time! Keeping you in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

    To the Houser family: I am so sorry for your loss. Jed was like a another brother to me growing up in Margate and Ventnor. I have so many fond memories that I will always hold on to. May he rest in peace, and may all of you feel the comfort that there is another angel watching over you and your families.
