Dearest Margo and family, our hearts and prayers go out to you during these days. Jerry fought the fight and kept his faith!! Jerry will always be remembered with that big smile and big heart. He was always helping others. We have many fond memories of our times at St. Mark's United Methodist Church. Our kids grew up with yours and you were wonderful youth leaders. I clearly recall the times that we were working at his shop in the evenings making items to be sold at the church bazaar. He was so organized and neat!! He did beautiful work and we still use and cherish the lovely and unique domino boxes. We celebrate that he now is totally healed and we are looking forward to spending eternity together in just a short time!!!

Our love to all,
Carl & Susie Van Marel
