I met Jerry and Robin when they adopted Winston from the Humane Society of McCormick County back in 2014. I remember them both because they were both so happy and excited to adopt him. I loved Winston and after spending time with Jerry and Robin, I knew they were going to treat him well. I am so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing.

I remember Jerry as a man with a gentle spirit; a person who was credible, reliable, trustworthy, dependable. Jerry was a go to kind of guy.
He was one of a kind, and will be missed.
Prayers for Robin, Billy, and all his family.
