So sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing Jerry at the back door of Fat Harold's. He is an icon in the world of shag who loved people and touched many lives.
JAN -our sympathy and prayers are with you. Jerry was always smiling and pleasant to be around. We have known you and Jerry since the 80s when we all joined the newly formed Charlotte Shag Club.
