Judy and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about Jerry's passing. We had a lot of fun through high school and going on our senior class trip to Washington D.C. We have missed you all at our class reunions the last few years. We always enjoyed talking to the two of you.

Judy and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the death of our dear classmate Jerry. We have missed you all at our class reunions the last few years. I know he is in a better place but the Haysi High School Class of 1960 will miss him greatly. We always enjoyed the two of you so much.
Love and prayers.
