    Nancy and I are so sorry Christy.
    May the comfort of the Angels wings as they took your Father on a journey ,but stayed with each of you.

  4. Jerry was like a brother. We’ve have so many precious memories of all our camping/fishing trips to Colorado and playing bridge every night. There will certainly be another vacant spot in our lives. What two beautiful people. They were such blessings in our lives that will surely be missed. Martha has her fishing buddy back. ❤️

  5. Kim and Kristy, I am so heartbroken for you and your families. Jerry was such a special friend and he will be so missed by so many. Praying for comfort and peace as only our Lord can provide. Much love is sent your way!
