Dear Shirley & Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you on the loss of Jerry. I remember all of you through the Markle Church of Christ and the many funerals I conducted with the Fusselman and Smith families over the years. May Gods prescience and Grace sustain all of you.

Cousin are so special. I was blessed with (if I remember correct there was 28 ) the year I was born there was 4 . I was one as well as Jerry, Phillip and Ron . Will not talk about the mischief we got in to. Life memories were made.
The last 5 years I was blessed with some deep talks and realized how little I knew about him and his lovely family .
He will be so missed. My prayers will be may God give you all the strength to go on and make him proud.
Love and Blessings
Sonja
