We are sad to hear of Jerry's death. Harvey knew him from high school. Harvey went to Northeast Tech also, but Harvey went into Diesel mechanics. Jerry has talked to Harvey at times when he came back to West Point. Wish we could have spoken to him recently but all our lives get too busy. Hopefully your family is close to help you thru these difficult days. We offer our prayers for Jerry and the whole family. God bless you all.
