Jerry was a fine and generous man and father. I respected him greatly as a man of deeds rather than words. He had three special daughters one who was very special to me. Thank you Jerry you were a fine man and you will be missed. Sleep in peace and I hope your family always rember you with Joy rather then sadness. At ease.
