I have visited this page several times, watched your Memorisl video and still I have no words that can describe my feelings…. Tears are flowing … I am so happy that I had the opportunity to chat with you not too long ago . So many family members have left us…. Especially in this last decade… Each time another passes my heart hurts a little more….as we age we know that our day will come to leave this earth and go to that beautiful place in the heavens…. It does not make it any easier for the people who are left behind… But we can only hope that we leave an impact on this world and the ones we love like you have… I wish I could be there for your services… Know that I am there in sprit … May you rest dear cousin without pain and burdens ….. God Bless….. Always and forever .
Your cousin Robin

My heartfelt condolences to Jerry’s family. May you find comfort and peace in the precious memories of your husband, father, brother, grandfather, and uncle, and by trusting and relying on the God of all comfort (Psalm 83:18) who is close to the broken-hearted, saving those who are crushed in spirit.
