We are so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing! I didn't have the privilege of meeting Jerry, but Momma, Evelyn, talked about her cousins, and told me the stories she knew about them! I do wish she understood things, I know she would hate to hear that she had lost another cousin! I am praying for comfort, and peace at this sad time!
We love all of you !
Barbara, and Evelyn.
