My deepest condolences to the Lerma family! I only meet Jerry one time, Mary and I had just had coffee together and I went with her to see her Sweet Jerry here in Pflugerville! He looked at me with those big beautiful eyes, I know he didn't say anything, but in my heart I heard him say take care of My Sweet Mary! The Love in his room surrounded the whole space. God Bless You Jerry and know that Mary will always be my friend!

Rembering Gerry & Lollie standing up as witnesses for my first wedding. Couldn’t have had a better couple for the job. Letting us stay with you for a few days after the wedding. We were close to you when our kids were just babies & as littles. Lots of laughs back in the day. Such wonderful primo & prima! God only takes the best, so RIP Gerry. ❤️

Lolly, it's been almost 50 years since I met you and Gerry and of course Michelle, she was just recently born. We became great friends. I have a lot of good memories, even more so when you first moved to Texas and stayed with us. Having our own lives to live we were close at 💓 and distance and yet our lives kept us apart. Yes, we kept in touch through phone and text. Gerry will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Know that I love you y'all.
