Mark & Family,
The Farmer Family sends its "Deepest Sympathies" on Jerry's passing.
Knowing Mark since college (1973), I was around Jerry and Jenella over those years. Jerry was quite a man of integrity and a "Great" father and grandfather!
I last saw an "Extremely Proud" Jerry on the evening of his granddaughter's (Caroline) wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed the "Smoke Alarm Chirp Dilemma" story and just heard the "Long Green Watch Caper" story from Jerry's FBI days. I will definitely miss those stories as I am sure Mark will miss telling them!
