"Faye, Jerry will be truly missed. I will certainly miss walking into church and the first person I would see looking down the hallway would be Jerry. He would be smiling and saying "Hello, Debra, how are you". It did not seem like that Sunday when I walked in. He was truly one man that changed his life for the Lord and I was glad I was a part of that memory of watching him grow in Christ. I loved it when he sung the song, "The Old Man Is Dead" because not only him, but memories of others would go through my mind while he was singing.
Amy, your father was a great person. Always cherish the memories even if some were not good, because the good ones always out weigh the bad ones. Trust me I know.
He was a great father-in-law to Kris and his grandchildren he truly loved. He was proud of each and everyone of you. Just remember to live for the Lord and one day you will meet him in Heaven. God Bless each and everyone in you."
