We lived on County Trunk Y for about 12 years across from Betty & Jerry. We moved in 1975 to Illinois but always have remembered the fun we had being their friends. We are sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. What a wonderful life. Art & Joyce Phenicie
Mr Sampson was a big part of my youth. I was beyond sad to hear of his passing. Mr. and Mrs. Sampson were aces to me in my high school years. He sold me my first car a 62 Nova convertible. Let me hang out with him when he was working in his shop on his cars. He set in motion many things that I love about myself that he helped foster. As the coolest guy I ever knew..... I wear black and white wing tip shoes routinely and think of him every time I put them on. He made me an endless fan of Mark 2 Lincolns and simply made me a better kid and a better man through knowing him and his generosity. Thanks Mr. Sampson, you did a lot for me. My Sympathy to your family, Dave Collins
Carole and family
I was so sorry to read about your father.
I think of you so often, when I pass the brick house on 8th Street.
Your Dad must have been so proud of Scott, being in the military!
Please call me when you are in town next time - we have to catch up!
My prayers and sympathy is extended to you and all of your family.
When you needed a friend, Gere was always there.

Dear Carole,Patty and Julie,I am thinking of you and sharing your sorrow.....Kathy McDowell-Koellner
Great Picture of Gerry. The whole family has our deepest sympathy from the staff at Prairie Crossing. What a wonderful man he was to know. We all still have our whistles that he gave us -to protect us if we were in trouble.
You are in our prayers.
My deepest sympathies. I know he will be missed by all of his family.
I have many fond and loving memories of visiting with Jere on his back porch, watching the squirrels. He will be surely missed. May God bless you and your family during this time of sorrow.
I send my sincerest sympathy to the family of Jere Sampson. He and Bettie were dear friends. He and Dick Goodman had a shop in the alley souh of Bluff Ave. between 6th and 7th streets very near my former home on the corner of 6th and Bluff Ave, Jere repaired many pieces of furniture for me and I really appreciated his fine work. I am still enjoying the old cane chairs he fixed that had belonged to my mother-in-law and were in bad shape, I know he has not been well these last few years but he will surely be missed by his many friends and family.

I miss you already Uncle Gere............may you forever rest in peace along with your loving family who preceded you.
