We were very sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. We always enjoyed Jerry's smiling face and friendly manner. We especially enjoyed sitting on our front porch with Jerry and enjoying a good glass of wine and cheese and crackers. Jerry always had a wonderful way not just with people but with dogs. When our son's dog saw Jerry, he always got excited and came running to see Jerry. We always maintained that Jerry was his favorite person. Jerry would always keep an eye on our house when we were out of town and took care of anything that needed to be done. There should be more kind, helpful, and wonderful people like Jerry. He will be greatly missed.

Beth, Amber and other family members....First of all, I'm sorry we won't be able to be there for you on Tuesday. You guys are family and I feel terrible that my schedule will keep us away. Jerry was such a special and FUN part of my life during my years of living up there. And although Angela just recently met Jerry for the first time, she constantly told me that we all needed to get together again so she could "laugh some more with Jerry". He was a special man that could make anyone laugh at any time. But his laugh was always bigger then anyone else and could never be out done. That's what I'll remember the most about Jerry. Love you guys!
