Jay Nolte

January 2, 2019

Dad, you were truly a remarkable man that taught your children to be strong and independent. You will be missed in more ways than you could ever imagine. Your name will most definitely be carried on way into the future, not only with a Jerry Jr, but also a Jerry III and a Jerry IV. May you finally meet your birth parents, and please thank them for not only your life, but the joy and happiness that you brought to Mike and Lula Nolte.

Until we meet again in Heaven, you will always be in my heart.
