    My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Jerry.
    May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

    I didn’t know Jerry real well, but he always welcomed me to their home. When Deb and I are together it’s hard for someone else to follow, but I remember is smilebut know he was Good guy. He loved Debbie, and his fur-babies. I know he was interested in old furniture, and was knowledgeable about the antiques he had. Him and Deb visited us in Tennessee last year, and was looking forward to traveling again this spring, Rest in Heaven Jerry

    Deb, Sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I’ll miss the waves and chats I’d get when I was passing on my way home. He was a great neighbor willing to do whatever he could if he could. I truly appreciate when he’d mow my yard before I found a regular person to do it. Prayers to you and your family.
