Rest in peace Jerry. Love and prayers to your family. I will always remember when I was a sub for the schools we would talk about the Browns before you left for the day!

Dad I love you and I will miss you. I’m so thankful god granted us this last trip to Vegas for your birthday. I was looking forward to going back in March. I will miss you at Rylee softball games and of course powder puff game. I could always count on you to be there with me cheering her on. Bye dad

I will always remember you showing up to every sporting event. Offering a dollar as incentive for every homerun I hit. I will always remember the lessons you taught me while explaining the best way that I could throw a strike while bowling. Even giving me one of your bowling balls after I started averaging on a high end. I'll never forget all that you had done for me both matter how small it may be. I truly wish Maleena would have had a chance to see you at one of her sporting events an or whatever other events she a may choose to do. You're forever loved by everyone in the family and there is not a day that goes by that you aren't going to be missed. Rest Easy and try not to let mom worry you too much.

I am so grateful to have had you as a gpa! To see you at all our games and supporting us, I’m so happy we got to go to Vegas for your birthday and I will always hold that memory close, I will surely miss you on all the holidays, they will not be the same without you, but I’m hoping you’re at peace and having a good time in heaven, I love you so much!

I love you grandpa.. I’m so sad your gone but at least I know your not alone. You get to be with your daughter and I know she is probably already getting on your nerves. I will remember every Christmas Eve coming over everyone arguing about who is going to be Santa. Now that I’m older I’d rather sit and have my presents handed to me lol. I miss you so much already. I will hold onto every memory ever shared with you. I love you. And I’ll see you and my mom one day. GO BROWNS!!
