I went to church with Mr. Kershaw for a long time. I was just a little kid when we first met and my family would sit in front of him and his wife often. I remember my mom would pick me up and i would look over her shoulder and Mr. Kershaw and I would make silly faces at one another. We had our own funny secret language. My heart breaks knowing he’s not here anymore but also rejoices with fact that he is in the presence of our Heavenly Father.

When I very young Uncle Jack and his new fiancé Nancy came to visit his Aunts at there farm , he then took Nancy out to the pasture to see the cows ( we were city folk ) well I was told to go with them by my Great Aunts so I went upon finding the cows Jack started calling to them to come but! I noticed one was not a cow but a neighbors bull who had tore the fence down and had gotten in withe the cows , he the bull didn’t like Jacks calling them and started charging him we Ran all the way up the lane to the main gate to get away . I will always remember Jack calling those cows he’d say here cow cow here cow it was so scary and funny . A great impression on his new soon to be wife lol.

Sending my deepest condolences to this wonderful family. I am a past coworker of Mr. Kerry. My children and I were invited for Christmas dinner about a year ago. There we were greeted with a warm family welcome and met Mr and Mrs Kershaw. He had a spirit of an comical angel from heaven lol.. He embraced my children and I as if he were our own papa. I thank the family for allowing us to share in some of your most precious family times together with you Father. Yet again another Angel has been called home to the Lord where he is needed as well. We Love and miss you all. May the comfort and strength of the Lord be with you all at this time.
