Jerry and Lois were the best neighbors anyone could be blessed with. Kind and caring and always willing to lend a hand. Both were hard workers, realists, and loving. They loved their kids and family members and they loved to spend time with each other. Their dog, Scooter, was a friendly and energetic dog that kept us all entertained!
We will never forget the kindness of either and they are missed greatly. The reunion that Jerry and Lois have in heaven would be worth witnessing.
