In loving memory of a wonderful person. Jerry and I became friends in 7th grade, and that friendship lasted all our lives. As teenagers and young adults, we spent many fun times together. I was close to his family. Throughout the years we maintained contact, and I am saddened by his passing. He was a wonderful, dear friend, and I'm so glad he was part of my life.
