I will miss setting on his front porch with him and always talking about his grass or lawnmower. Jerry was a guy that always made you laugh about something. No one will ever keep his yard mowed like him...... And last but not least he will be missed by so many at McDonalds..........his favorite morning coffee place. I truly will miss you................
