Jerry was one of the good guys, and best friends a person could have. He was part of the original coffee buddies that met at McDonald's every day for over 20 years. Our lives went separate ways, and quite a few will be having coffee in Heaven, three this year. Lost contact for a while, but recently reconnected through FB and got to talk with him on the phone and was going to meet for coffee before he and Jane went back to Texas. Love you always. Donna and Jerry Loveall
