    Little brother, the only thing that helps us through your loss is knowing that you are no longer in pain. Tell Mom and Dad that we miss them and that we will see you all again someday.

    We were so sad when we heard about Jerry’s passing. Wish I had been well enough to attend the memorial. The video tribute was wonderful. I like to think he’s hanging out on his awesome boat with beer in hand, waiting for everyone else to get to the party! ‘Damn the topedoes’ as Connie would say! We all miss you Jerry! Jean, Joey, Kristen, Amy if you need anything let us know. Our thoughts are with you!
