Dear Paula and Hale:
I was secretary for Jerry for over 14 years. I was with him when he was planning to ask Paula to marry him: I was there for his wedding, I was there through the early morning hours when his son Hale was born and with Paula for his last breath on this earth.
He used to say I was a shining light in the office; and he loved my apple pies. He was a good sport even when I beat him at liar's poker! I was his secretary and friend. I and all his other dear friends, and there are so many of you, will miss this dear man. He was an honest insurance man who gave honest advice about insurance and cared for his clients. Blessings to you my dear friend. Emily Bonette
