    You have my deepest sympathies. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend either service. He was so great at giving me ‘grief’, but always with a twinkle in his eyes. He’ll be missed by many.

    I am very sad to hear that Jerald (Smokey) has passed on. He and your mother were great loving couple. I worked at Ryan’s with Jerald and Mary Kay. He was surely missed when he retired at Ryan’s. My thoughts and Prayers go out to the Family at this time of sorrow.

    Roseburg OregonOur thoughts are all good about Jerry, even though we didn’t get much time with him, and we would like to extend our positive feelings to his family and friends. I talked to my mom “Rosie” today and she has many stories of living with Abby and Loraine, Jerry and the rest, back in the late 40’s. She asks that I extend her condolences and prayers to the family.
