To Kelly, Lindsay, an Fisher, I am saddened to hear the news about Jerry's passing on and leaving this life for the next stage of life. It hurts because we can't hear see or touch but don't be sad he will always be around and looking out for you all. He is still around it's just that his physical appearance isn't here but his spirit is which make him what my relatives say is "Wakan" he is holy because he walks amount the spirits and relatives and ansestors that went on before us. We will all have are time when we can go home to that good place of nothing but smiles,love, compassion, humility and humbleness and they will be waiting for us with love n smiles to welcome us home in that butterfly like stage of life. I'm praying for you all and send my love hope to see you all soon. Take care of one another, love each other, be good to each other and laugh along the way. Netanawahmakenuk
