Very sorry for the families loss. He was a kind soul

Jerry is my nephew-in-law, married to my dear niece, Vickie. I loved him dearly, and his passing is so heartbreaking. We had a great relationship. I was hoping and praying that he would be healed and he and Vickie could visit us again in AZ. We had such a good time with them during their last visit. I loved hearing him sing and play the guitar. But God wanted him to come to his Heavenly Home instead. Even as we are grieving his passing, he is at this moment breathing easily and talking to Jesus and to his loved ones who are already there. He will be sorely missed, and Vickie, I pray that the Lord will comfort your grieving heart and give you the peace and strength that He alone can give in this difficult time. Jerry, your Aunt Rosie will miss you.

I would like to share my deepest condolences to the family of a very dear friend. Jerry was always so pleasant to talk to and my mother enjoyed conversation with him when he would come sing at Salem health and rehab. Jerry was a blessing to know.

Sending our deepest sympathy to all the family. Jerry was a classmate of mine. He was always so sweet. When we would run into each other over the years he was still the same sweet fellow. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this time. God´s peace be with y´all.
