I dont have just one memory of Jerry. I have been blessed enough to have known this entire family for over 30 years! Jerry was always so kind and sweet! I loved it when his face would light every time he would see or talk about Linda and Becky! What an amazing man! My heart does hurt for the family but I am also so happy they Linda got to build so many wonderful memories with Jerry! I love you all!!!
