Sweet brother, it's so hard to believe that it has been over a year since you were so tragically taken from us. Your entire family still misses you so much. I pray that our Heavenly Father keeps you safely in His arms until we meet again. May God grant us understanding about what happened to you and give us peace knowing that you are no longer suffering.

Uncle Jerry you will be dearly missed! I am so very thankful that we will be reunited in Glory with Jesus our King and Savior.
The picture I'm attaching is the way I will ALWAYS remember him. Sitting outside visiting with family and chatting the day away! He was certainly blessed with the "gift of gab"! I loved that about him... He loved deeply, and genuinely. I'm sooo proud to call him FAMILY!
