I was sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. We spent many high school days together playing in the Rockatones band and had a great time. He was a nice person and ha a beautiful smile.
I am sorry had a conflict in scheduling and could not attend the funeral. He will be surely missed.

Jerry was a fine man, and was always thinking of others. He loved his family, and bragged on them every chance he had.

My heart is heavy. We have lost a father, father-in-law, and paw-paw. We are grieving over losing you, but longing for heaven ourselves. I'm sure you were greeted at heaven's gates by our Lord and Helen, as well as other loved ones that have gone on before you. We will miss you, but your memory will live forever in our hearts until we meet again....Tammy
