The Lord certainly opened heavens pearly gates a bit wider just to accommodate the width and depth of your kind heart and generous soul. Jerry & Janet, I won't ever forget your kind words, the few laughs we shared and your generosity to my family. May you rest in eternal peace and those you leave behind be comforted by the One who comforts all. I'm sure Pop (Tony Ferranda) is showing you around ❤
