I miss my brother, like really bad! My best memories of Jerry were as children when we had the absolute best of times. The most favorite though is the last ten years of so when he turned hisself back to the Lord and watching him grow spiritually after that. We had always had deep discussions about life, Jesus, better living and conflict management within the family, didn't always work but what did work was Jerry's heart was always in the right place . . .

Great memories of Jerry Wayne! When he and I were around 12 years old, we spent a lot of Sunday afternoons together, either at his parents home or my parents home. I remember us exploring through the field across from their home and enjoying the creek (likely just a drainage ditch from the Airbase that I'm sure we were not suppose to be in). Then there is the memory of him holding the side gate at our house, our dog jumped up on the gate and Jerry Wayne let go and made a run for it (to get away). Our dog caught him by the leg . . . Don't think the dog bite was bad, and if I remember, they became friends too. He was a great friend of mine and always will be, as well as his family too. My best to family! Stewart Brown
