Oh Jerry, how I will miss that twinkle in your eye when you teased the ones you loved. Watching the Aggies or Cowboys play will never be the same without hearing you cheer or yell at the players. God so blessed me when he gave me you as my Father-in-law. Rest and I can’t wait to see the new tricks you have taught Star. I so adore you, your daughter-in-love, Lisa
