Not sure what to say?

Jerry, you are the definition of many things:
You define kindness, the guy who would pull over on the side of the road to help a stranger.
Warmth, you had the ability to warm a persons heart with a simple line from a favorite movie.
Strength, you showed what it took to provide for your family and never complained about breaking your back to do it. Yes, it all started when you had 3 jobs at 22 years old just so you had enough money to take me out :)
Magic, you brought...

Jear Bear was how I always greeted you missing that big smile of yours and that laugh I always looked forward to going to the paint hospital to see you it's not the same without you there and it never will be for me and for all those that had the privilege to know you and all that you meant to all of us I won't say good bye to you because I feel you will still be present in our lives I believe you are still here and will always be with us your spirit will live forever in all of us and we will...

One day we were walking into work together, not everyday i have my hair down, as alway Jerry knew how to make someone feel good about themselves. He turned and looked at me and said wow you look good. I said unfortunately you can see my natural highlights. He said thats called Wisdom,Kelly... and i said lots of wisdom. Then he turned and looked with those eyes and oh yea,lots of wisdom. We laughed and of course from that day on, he called me "WISDOM". Really going to miss hearing...

Your best accomplishment "your daughter "

"Yes!" We all will tell her
You will be there at school with her when she graduates
When she gets married
When she has a child.......
Her guardian angel

But for now we will pray for you and your family who will miss you very much
I had a dream your grandparents were waiting to see you, grandma was...

Garza family,

We didn't know Jerry that well but the times we were able to hang out my family and I could tell what a kind hearted person he was. His love for his mother and daughter was very apparent in each of our talks. May he Rest In Peace and we are praying for All of your healing every day. Hugs to all of you.

My Brother,
This has been a tough loss in my book. The precense you brought to a room was out of this world, you brought out the best out of everyone from working at Toyota to a simple BBQ get together. There was never a dull moment when you were around my family and me. This isn't a farewell it's a I'll see you later My Brother.

Garza family, Jerry was a great person. he always had a smile and friendly hello, how's the kids in passing at work. My sincerest condolences for your family and friends.


I can only take the words of encouragement you gave me, during a sad time in my life. You gave me the courage to reach for the impossible. The interaction, the friendship the words of wisdom, I'll carry with me always.
