God will make you strong as you are supported by friends and family. Jerry and I had hundreds of chats at the stadium as he supported our recreation programs. Thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.

To Evelyn and Bernice and families,
We are just seeing Jerry's obituary and like others shocked and saddened to see it. We remember him as one of our young people while in LaScie. While your hearts are broken, remember the one who can mend it, in His time in His way. May you experience the healing power of Jesus and his special grace for you at this time.
