Jerry was a friend to all who knew him. He always had a smile and a handshake for everyone. He love a good joke or story and had one for you in return. He love to sing and was good at it. I always tried to visit with him 1 or 2 times a month. I hate that I couldn't see him for the past few months. Covid19 stopped a lot of visits. He was a good friend and I will miss him. He loved his church and is now in a better place. God will now take care of my friend.
