y father, Enoch Purvis, was Jerrys first cousin and very fond of him. He lived with Aunt Claudia and Jerry for a time just prior to serving in WW2. Aunt Claudia and My grandfather, Clarence Purvis, were siblings.
Was blessed to see Jerry a few years ago in New Albany MS at a Purvis reunion. He was highly admired and loved by my parents, and I was blessed by the few times we met and talked.

Jerry is an example of what the combination of hard work and kindness can...

We are very sorry for your loss. We will miss seeing Jerry Sunday mornings and around the neighborhood.

Am saddened to hear of Jerrys passing. Many memories of him & his family over the years especially when he was an architectural partner with my late husband in Jackson, Mississippi. His was a life well lived.

Jane and family. Linda and I are very sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. We always enjoyed being around y'all when we were at Calvary.
