Sending heartfelt sympathy and prayers. Jerry was my first cousin. Her father George and my mother Frances were brother and sister. It has been 9 years since I last saw Jerry, Johnny and Aunt Kathryn. We had a Bowman family reunion and Jerry and Johnny made the best gumbo! Please know your family in Pennsylvania is thinking of you all. Jan and Bill King and Charles and Kathy Megahan.
