I will always remember this precious man for his beautiful smile, his laughter, his warm heart and his always having a kind word for everyone. The world has truly lost a wonderful man but he is now singing with the angels and watching over his family. Eddie and Sheri my prayers of comfort and peace are with you both.

My name is Becky (Garland) Whitis. Jerry's Mom who we knew as Mrs.Ramsey helped take care of us and helped our grandmother Ethel Garland when we were little. Jerry looks alot like her to me. She was a kind sweet lady. Please tell Jimmy we are sorry for his loss. The sunflowers remind of her too. I think she had a garden in the back of her house. Prayers for the family.
