Jackie,
In the beginning, I shared your union with Jerry, as a member of your wedding party.
Fond memories of family reunions, your childrens’ weddings, days at the lake...; Jerry always kind, interesting and a pleasure to be near!
In the end, never is there enough time to share with those you enjoy.
Let your tears fill the hole in your heart with beautiful memories; let family and friends fill your emptiness with new memories; continue to share your time and wisdom with others.

God Bless you and your wonderful family!
Teri
