I was so happy when Jerry moved back to Welsh and opened the pharmacy. It was so good to see him and his family on a regular basis. If he wasn’t at the counter when I walked in, I would always holler, “wake up Jerry!“ He was such a kind and gentle giant! We will miss him! Deepest sympathy to Myra and family.

I am very sorry for how sad you must be. I don't know you or you me, but I did know Jerry when we were preteens and teens at church and school. He was always well thought of and very nice and nice to be around. Your family will be in my prayers for God's comfort and peace.

Chubby and I were sorry to read about Jerry's passing. I haven't seen him in years but will always remember his sense of humor and sweet personality. Jerry was such a great classmate and our prayers and warm thoughts are with his entire family.

Dear Myra and family, Lynn and I would just like for you to know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. I couldn't have asked for a better friend as we were growing up. If I needed an answer to a difficult question, Frog was always one of my "go to" guys. We all have some great memories of our times together. Rest in peace my friend! Earl Shipp
