Jerry Don Griffin
September 4, 2021
I grow up with Jerry Don and all the other family in our house in Gordon. He was very talented and we use to set on the front porch and he played the banjo and harmonica while me and Mama (Granny Dora) sang.
I was raised by Dora and Runt Griffin from 2 years old until 17. We use to have to shell butterbeans and peas every summer. Jerry Don would shell one and throw three away. Daddy Runt would have to check his to pick out the ones Jerry Don threw away.
There are many memories living in that house. I will remember Jerry Don.
Rest in peace Uncle Jerry Don. .....
