Sharon and I send our prayers and condolences. We love both Jerry and Avanelle our neighbors in Mint Hill. Jerry was so funny! He always had an impish grin and a love for people.

What wonderful neighbors you and Avanelle were for all those years! I remember when I was about 7 or 8 years old you would let me ride your riding lawnmower and at that time I thought that was the coolest thing ever.

Rest easy forever friend. Say hello to Mary & Jimmy.
