I am so sorry to hear about Jerry. I worked at QST when he did. I always enjoyed talking to him. He could be so comical. He was a very nice man. You are all in my prayers.

Jerry and I were friends in Elementary School. I remember when his two Brothers drowned in Dutchman's Creek. He will get to see them and his other loved ones again. Jerry was a friendly guy, a good family man, a good worker, and most importantly a Christian.
