He took care of my children for 9 years. He would be so proud of who they are today. I am so sad that he has passed away. My children and I have alot of fond memories of him. We will always remember you.

Jerry was indeed a special friend to me. He had a beautiful musical talent and I can recall extra time spent together to help me play the french horn. He had a kind and gentle nature. Even though Jerry was a quiet person, that in itself spoke loudly to others. My condolences to the family. I will always remember, Jerry.
