Jerry,
It's so hard to believe that the day has come that we have to say goodbye to our brother.
Until we meet again brother, sing with the angels and rejoice with our Lord and Savior. Say hi to mom and dad, for your work on earth is done. Know that I love you and that we will catch up on all things missed in this life.
