My sympathy to Jerry's family. He and Joan were our neighbors on Crescent Lake. I have many great memories of Jerry coming over and talking to Davey and Fane. We will miss you.

Jerry, my friend. Even though we had been friends for a short time, I am so sorry to find out you left us. I was in North Dakota at the time. God bless you. You were so kind and friendly. I'll miss talking to you. Thank you for the memories.
