My heart was sadden when I received a call from your beautiful wife saying you were home but not well. I planned to come visit you the next day. A few hours later I received another call saying you were gone. I have known you since I was a little girl, always called you Uncle Kerry, when we were not related at all. You and my dad Raymond Frazier were very good friends, you were always at the house so I started calling you Uncle Kerry. Tell my dad hello I love you both and miss you both dearly! Gone but never forgotten! No more pain and suffering, rest my Uncle Kerry rest. Love you Aunt JoAnn, remember I'm just a phone call away. Mom loves you both and sends the family her prayers.
