  1. I am proud to call Jerry my friend. We worked together 15 years and I always enjoyed working with him. I share your sorrow at his passing. He was and still is a kind-hearted soul.

  2. It was my pleasure to have known Jerry. Although we only worked together for a brief time, he will surely be missed. He was truly a character.

  3. Wanda,

    You and your dear family are in our thoughts
    and prayers. We were so sorry to learn of
    Jerry’s passing. You were the greatest neighbors and we truly enjoyed the many visits; especially the last one. Jerry was never lacking in the ability to converse about anything, always available and eager to help others. God Bless!! Love, Ronnie & Nancy
