Jerry was a wonderful father n law to me and a awesome grandfather to my two sons. I remember after John and I had separated and our son Jeff was in the hospital for another surgery - Jerry left some money in the drawer of the hospital room for us. When Jake and Jeff were around the age of 7 and 9, Jerry came down to my home and built the boys a tree house, he fixed so many things on my home that were broken.

The sweetest memory I have of Jerry is on one Christmas Day when Jeff and Jake were with John for Christmas, Jerry came to take me out to eat because I was by myself. He was such a sweet, loving man. I always felt that he loved me. He will be missed.
