I had known Jerry for many years as a former ASID, TX Chapter, Board member. He was such a warm and pleasant person to be around always. I remember our last chat as though it was yesterday, even though it was probably at last year's Metrocon in Dallas. Please accept my sincere condolences; May God's Peace and Grace comfort you.

Jerry's younger Doyle was one of my best friends. I knew Jerry as Doyle's big brother, who had his own car! I loved having them as neighbors. They were good people. I wish we all had stayed in better touch. God bless all of you.
