I have so many memories of Jerry that I don’t know where to begin. I think the first time I met him, Gina piled us all in his car and we went for a drive. I don't remember where we went or why we were going, but I remember laughing, having a great time and knowing that I liked this man that stole my cousins heart. He always had a smile….even on a bad day. He was always there if I (or anyone else) needed something, and definitely there for Gina and his girls. They were the loves of his life. Jerry had a huge love for his Lord too. I know that he was welcomed in heaven with open arms. What a joy that must be! But for us, he’s left a big hole. My prayers are with all of his family and friends. Jerry will truly be missed!

What can I say about my brother which has not been said already? I can tell you he was what is called my BFF, which is a term used today, and means Best Friend Forever! That is what he has always meant to me! I always loved anytime I got to spend with him! You know as you get older, you don't get to see your siblings and relatives like you did as youngsters! Like he told me many times, I have a family of my own now that I have to take care of! I understood what he meant! He had a wife and his daughters to look after! But anytime I needed him to help me with my old TA or something he could help me with around the house, I'd give him a call! That wasn't the only reason I called though! This was a chance to get to see him for a little while! He would visit for a little while longer than he had to, and I loved him for me getting to see him! I appreciate Gina for letting him come by when I called him for something! I'm really going to miss his visits more than I can say! I loved him very much,and will miss him forever! I know he's with GOD,and mama and daddy now, and that makes me feel better! Bye Jaybird!

He was a spectacular brother. The people that will be at the biggest loss is everyone that is here without him. He has spread his wings and his flight is ongoing. Loved dearly and will truly be missed. Now he can see Mom and Dad in heaven .

I worked for Jerry. He always had a great attitude and sense of humor.
I enjoyed our conversations.
