I am so very sorry for your loss. It is not the day that Jerry was born or the day that he passed that means the most. It is the dash between those dates that hold all the memories. I only had a short time to get to know him, however, In that short time i enjoyed my time talking to him :) May the pain of his loss fade to allow good memories to fill its place.

Dave Leitch

I grew up across the street for you and still have the wonderful memories of that neighborhood,it was like we were all one giant family spanning the block, Rome was a wondeful guy always smiling and had a quick one liner to make you smile too,Flo was one of out neighborhood mothers who kept a watchful,caring eye on all,Jerry,Kenny and Darla were like brothers and sisters I was moreso close to Darla being tha same age and going through schill together. Just want to let you all know you're in my thoughts and prayers now and have always been,thank you for being a part of my life..
