October 16 will be different. Mr. Jerry was a few days from 99 years young. He will celebrate with GOD, his parents and sister and other family. Memories: I was blessed to met him though Arnold over 15 years ago. Going to visit his mom. Mr. Jerry was always reading, his enjoy watching golf and most of all the Colts, we would send him Colts clothes and magazines. His old car that was in mint condition. His special knife for dinner. He loved his yard, we came to help lay river rock with him. The hummingbird that would fly to the window to see him. I have last year birthday memories, I drove up to surprise him. He was always happy. Bless you.

To a friend and a father I will always miss you. I’m so sad that you are gone but I know you are now somewhere that I pray everyday when I pass away I will go.
I enjoyed the times that we got to spend together and I will never forget everything you had taught me. I will never forget you showing me and my brother how to golf. As frustrating as much as it must have been for you to put up with us at times, lol you did!. Now you will be golfing on the most beautiful golf course imaginable!
You will be missed by many. Im so proud and happy and blessed to have had you in my life and I’m so thankful to have been a part of your life. I will always love you! Me, my brother and mother will love you always!
