As I sit hear thinking about what to write my heart is breaking thinking that we won't have anymore early morning talks outside drinking coffee talking about life, you have truly lived a full life from Germany to a Marine in the United States, an amazing husband, father and everything in between. You were the father I didn't have at a time where I really needed it I fell in love with your daughter and didn't have a relationship with my father, you showed me that no matter what you take care of your family, you laugh at the little things like pretending you're sleeping so we stop talking haha and you never giving up if you have only single breathe in you. Your advice at 2am at the dinner table in your underwear will always make me laugh on days I can't even think about you without breaking down. You are and will always be my Papa Jay, I hope you're in heaven running around with Shatzee and your family smiling down on us. I hope we make you proud. SLEEP IN PEACE DAD

Dad, Words can not express the feeling of losing you. But a simple thank you for all you did for Mom, Maggie, and I is the least I can say. I can’t thank you enough for all the lessons you taught me. For making me the successful man I am today. For hanging on for 34 years of my life and seeing my wife and two children. I am forever grateful for all that extra time. For instilling values in me that most don’t have the opportunity to learn about. A work ethic that most will never understand. Showing me what love is by watching you and mom go through so much but always together through it all. The stories you shared over the years. Being open with your successes and failures in your life. The little memories are what I catch myself thinking about lately... our trip to Arizona where it was just us, Saturday drives to get Mr Smith’s mail, teaching me how to throw a curve ball (even though it put you in the hospital ;)), my first Mets game, my first Knicks game, letting me sneak back into the house late at night as a teenager and not telling mom, the trips to the city, the drives to look at other peoples mansions in Greenwich, Jones beach, and the list goes on. So thank you for always being there and thank you for the lessons you’ve taught me. Know that you will never truly be gone. Those lessons will be passed to my children who will pass it to theirs and the memory of you will be carried on forever. “Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it's overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” -John.

I am so sorry for your loss. Hans will be in our hearts and memories forever. Wishing you strength and peace during this hard time. Words, no matter how kind, can't mend your heartache. May the memories of Hans and the love of family surround you and give you strength in the days ahead. I feel blessed to have known Hans and consider him my friend. Hans and I met 25 years ago at Merrill Lynch, from the first day Hans and I we hit it off. Everyone loved Hans, he had such a big heart. He was always the first one to help someone in need. Hans and I always joked with each other but I always got the best of him, he used to get so annoyed (Hans sorry about your shoes). After Hans got sick 18 years ago we all pulled together to help him and his family. I got to know his loving wife Sheree and his two Beautiful children John & Maggie. Through the years we all got even closer and I consider them all as part of my family. Hans” will always be within my heart and the many others that loved him. You will be truly missed Buddy. Love, Your Friend Mike

Our dear Hans, you welcomed us, as strangers, into your home, and into your heart. We quickly became friends, and then "family". We will cherish the times we spent with you and the many happy memories we made with you, your beloved wife, Sheree, and your awesome kids, Maggie and John., and their families. You were a very special man, and we will miss you, but we will meet again. Reat in peace, our friend, our brother.

Dad, My heart will forever feel a piece missing in your absence. The times we shared I will forever cherish. You were an incredible father, husband, grandfather and overall human being. You were the first man I have ever loved and even with you gone that will never change. Your strength and resilience was a remarkable thing to witness (you being a stubborn German came in handy with all you have endured). Through it all you were always there for me and the bond of father and daughter will never be broken. Our son will carry your name with respect and grace and make you proud. Hans will always remember the times you had together doing yardwork and scaring each other lol Even though you may not be here physically I know you will continue to be our protector and guide us on the right path, my angel. Finally be at peace, walk amongst your loved ones with ease and talk your heart out! We love you Dad always!
