Jerry was the best father in law you could ask for. He was a kind man with an impeccable smile! He was a great friend who cared and helped others. He also loved Barb with everything in him along with his kids. He was always very close to his son. His grandkids were his pride and joy. I am honored to say I was married in the family in 1996. Although I’m no longer married in the family, I have and will always consider them my family. He had a good life and made some good memories. He is now rejoicing with Pap and Mamaw, his mom and dad. What a reunion that must be!! It feels so good to know i will see him again one day. Praying for his family and hoping they find comfort in knowing when they see him again, he won’t be hurting. He may be playing CCR and having a good ole time. With all my Love, Melissa
