So sorry to hear about Jerry. I will always remember him as one of my best childhood friends. Whenever he would get that old Gibson guitar out, the singing and good times would begin. He was always such a gentle soul with many words of wisdom. Always, Cherry Franklin Davis

Dear Debbie and family,words cannot express the sadness we felt when we learned of Jerry's death. Paul and I have such fond memories of Jerry and what fun he was to work with in ICU!

To Allison, Raine, and the rest of the family, I am so sorry for your loss and wish you peace as you get through this difficult time. Much love sent your way!

I always loved answering the phone when we worked in Atlanta and it would be Jerry on the other end. We would enjoy a long discussion about politics and the state of the world. I always considered him a friend, not sure he had an enemy. His kind spirit and joy in his voice always lifted me up. Prayers for you Debbie and the entire family.

To Debbie and Family, please accept my most heartfelt sympathy for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
