    I first became acquainted with Jerry after I began a career with the Veteran’s Administration in Indianapolis, IN. I later met his lovely wife at The Harrison where my wife and I were residents beginning in 2020. I’ll always remember his wife as she seemed always to smile and was so friendly. I lost my wife in April 2020 after 72 yeas of a happy, blessed marriage. I suspect that Jerry and Darcy also had a wonderful marriage and he was devastated when she died. My prayers go out to the members of Jerry and Darcy’s family. May the Lord be of comfort at his time of your grief.
