Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry for the loss of a great man. Fond memories of talking about cars, Jerry's time in Korea, and the boy scout camping trip that left a lasting impression. It was obvious talking to Jerry that he had a great love and pride for his wife and his family. He set the standard of manhood and honor for many of us that knew him.
