  • Judy, Jodie, and Steven , please know how sorry I am for your loss. After my own Father, Jerry has been in our lives the longest of any other male figure. He was cut from the same cloth as Dad and was a great role model. Hard working, honest, full of life, and treated people the way he wanted to be treated. Although separated by many miles and too much time between our visits I will miss him, but I will never forget.
