Sorry to hear about Jerry. He was a good friend in high school. Last time I got to talk to Jerry was when I saw a Billion Iron Works coming up Old Fort mountain. Asked the trucker who he was via CB and it was Jerry. We both pulled in to a parking lot in Black Mountain NC. We had a short conversation about Brillion High, old times, friends and what we each were doing with out lives. He had to get back on the road to Wisconsin and I was past due home for supper in Asheville, NC. Maybe we'll meet again in the after life.
