We've missed you these past years at the crab feeds. Just haven't been the same without you. We had a lot of laughs, food, and drink there. We miss exchanging jokes with you and all the laughter. We're honored to have started as a business relationship; and, ended as a friendship for so many years. Rest in peace. You are in our prayers.

I love you Uncle Jerry! I will miss giving you a hard time about thinking I was Delynn! I know you are in a much better place! Tell those that have gone before us that you are all loved and missed very much! Keep playing that beautiful music!

I always enjoyed listening to the Cates brothers play and sing. Although Dad (Bill) didn't play much he sure lit up when everybody was playing. I will hope to hear them all play again in heaven one day.

As his oldest Nephew, I lived next door to Henry and Henrietta Cates and Jerry was just beginning High School at that time, being only 5 years younger I can remember a few things that happened then...He used to give me rides around in his Oldsmobile, and was always having a good time as I remember...I remember the Sunday Jam sessions in Grandpa and Grandma's Living room, and watching him and all my uncles playing music and having such a good time, then all of us sitting down for Ham hocks and white beans. Then Later in life attending a Golf Tournament he produced and made some funny comments about my golf game as he handed me a #1 driver (I still have) that I won in his raffle. I remember the very proud look on his face when he greeted his very talented Daughter Kristy back stage where she starred in the "Into the Woods" Production. My only regret is that I didn't come to visit him more. My condolences to all his surviving family to which I am proudly one.
RIP dear uncle Bruce W. Cates son of Willis Frank Cates, Jerry's oldest brother.
