Dear Sauceman family,
Me and my family are sorry we did not get to attend today. We are sorry for your loss. Jerry/ Pig and his family lived across the street from me and my family. Me and my family have special memories of all the softball games played , bike riding, and of course hide and go seek played. We have great memories growing up with Pig and his family. I pray God will comfort all of you and thank him for the great times and memories he gave us.

Uncle Pig was a best friend and would help anybody that needed. He always like to cut up and joke around. We love going to the mountains when it snowed and playing ball. I will miss him everyday. Pig i know your in Heaven watching over us now and keeping us safe with papaw Satan. I love you! You may be gone in person but you will always be here in sprit. R.I.P 😇 Heaven gained one of the best Angel in the world. Until I see you again i will always remember the good times we had and the fun things we done. Love always and forever my uncle and best friend!!

To The Entire Sauceman Family,
It breaks our hearts to hear about the loss of "Pig." My family enjoyed playing ball beside him or just watching him from the stands. My mom always said, "That Pig's a sweetheart." The entire Alexander family offers their heartfelt condolences during this most difficult time.
In Christian Love,

Dear Sauceman family,

We would like to extend our deepest condolences to your family during this tragic time. Pig was such an awesome person. My family got to know him through our family member who worked with him at Alo. He was so so fun and my children absolutely LOVED him. He sure was a hoot. I have several videos of him playing with the children and just having a grand time and we will treasure those forever. We were going to get together on a Sunday and go fishing but we just never made it :( Out hearts ache for your entire family. Sending prayers for comfort and healing during this tragic time.

The McCurry Family
(Neil, Heather, Zayden, & Zoe)
(And my father in law, Howard in which Pig nicknamed him “Bernie”)
