  1. Jerry is 1 of 7 of double first cousins in our family. Sadly, there is now 4 of us. We spent many summer vacations traveling to Seminole, Tx & his family came to North LA on vacations & holidays. All of our families were close. Our Moms did hand me downs & I wore many of his jeans. My favorite hand me down was a pair of his baseball pants I wore when I was about 12. I thought of Jerry as a big brother than a cousin. Prayers to Sue, Donna, Trish & family. Love Ronnie Trant
