I am so very sorry for your loss. I just found out about Jere passing, today. He was such a great guy. I loved him very much. He was always good to me when I would come harass him when I was a teenager. If there is ever anything I can do for you please, don't hesitate to ask. I am here anytime. I love all of you.

Missed knowing the adult "Butch", we had lost contact over the years. You are all in my prayers and the knowledge that he is no longer in pain or dealing with it. I am sure he has introduced himself to John perhaps.Please know that prayers are there for your strength and that you will , with time, always have the good memories. Eva Steele Memphis

Glenna - Jere was a great friend and I will miss the wonderful shoulder rubs he gave when needed to relieve the NAPA stress. I know how much he loved you and how big a gap his passing will leave in your life. I pray God will give you comfort and peace during this time.
