Live Oak offers a loving service that helps both the caregivers and Alzheimer's patients whether they can afford their services or not. Seniors pay only what they can afford or nothing at all. They took care of Jerry's sweet wife Ann Marie on Wednesdays during his many trips to the doctors. And she always enjoyed being there.
I will forever be grateful to Jerry for giving my Mother Ann Marie 40 years of love and happiness.
My Dad Bob Rockwell shared many interesting conversations with Jerry at their mutual dining table while Ann and Jerry were living at Carlton Plaza. He was very sad to read about Jerry's passing.
Jerry Preston - I miss you so much! I was actually looking forward to being your chauffeur. You will never know how much I cared about you and your wife - what a great example you were for true love! You will always be my "Notebook" couple. I loved you dearly and will miss you more.
I am saddened. I have known Jerry Preston and his wife for many years and they are amongst the nicest, kindest couples I have ever known. My heart is heavy. Jeanne Sandretto
Saddened to hear of Jerry's passing. Jerry and Ann were best friends with my parents since the 60's. I have many memories of good times with my family that include Jerry and Ann. He was such a kind and gentle soul.
Have a suggestion for us?
