Mr Jerry worked with me at ccm and always talked and laughed with all of us. I was the first person that he talked to his first day and were friends from that moment. He will truly be missed. He had even asked me for some packs of mayo the week before the Dr put him off work. And I never hesitated to give him the mayo. Such a loss. Gone from our sight forever in our hearts and thoughts. RIP MR JERRY.
