It was a delight to see Jerry and his wife last fall at our national church conference. It was a surprise, and more of a surprise to both of us that I remembered his name. We had met him and his wife more than once during our missionary travels. They both had a burden for overseas ministry and supported their church’s program to support Global Missionaries. We are thankful for saints like Jerry who have helped us advance the Kingdom. Our sorrow, love and prayers remain for the family.

Jerry was always so upbeat and ready with words to cheer you if you were having a bad day. His smile will be greatly missed.

Dear Sue and family, Don and I were so saddened to hear of Jerry’s fatal accident! We are praying for you all, comfort and strength from Jesus Christ, our Lord. He is our hope and anchor thru the storms of life. So thankful we got to see y’all at the Seniors Christmas dinner in TN! We’ve been recalling some of the great memories of being with you and Jerry, most recent being our trips on the TN bus to General Conference. A soldier has gone home! He will be greatly missed, but he ran his race with faith and courage. God bless you. Our love and prayers, Don and Linda Clenney
