We extend our sincere and deepest sympathy to Glenda, Jerrys dear wife - and Jerry´s other survivors. We met Jerry shortly after meeting Glenda at church. We remember him as a kind, honest, and hardworking man who always had a smile on his face - whom we consider a friend. Our belief is that Jerry has been welcomed into Heavenly Paradise and has joined his niece, Brooke, along with other family and friends. DeAnn, Brian, and Nolan White

Having become friends in 1967 and maintaining friends till his death, Jerry will be missed dearly. Every time we came together we enjoyed each others company and he always reminded me of how we played ditch-em on the dirt streets of Gering , with our cars . Sorry to lose you but we may meet again someday.

Glenda, I am praying for you. I was so sorry to hear of Jerry's death. I will always remember when we would see each other at BMS. He was always smiling while saying something to me in a teasing manner.
