I am so heart broken for your loss of such precious people. Such a tragic death. I knew Mary and Jerry from church many years ago. Unfortunately I lost contact with them. Two fine people. May you rest in the arms of Jesus. To the family, know you had two great people to look up to. We don’t understand Gods plans but one day we will meet again. May God give you strength as you go through your grief . Give it to God and you will be able to move forward . God bless and my prayers are with you. Carol Harvill- Norred
