Martha,
Joe and I are so very thankful for the few times we were able to spend Thanksgiving with you and Jerry. He was always very pleasant and easy to talk with. May God draw you near during your time of loss and comfort you as only He can.

In His Care,
Joe and Karen Ernspiker

Jerry was a wonderful man. He cared just as much as about Cindy and Billy as he did about Scott. They were all his kids. That’s what makes a true father. I do think of him often. Celebrate Jerry’s life!
