Let the memory of Jerell be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Jerell Cape, 37, born on May 23, 1959 and passed away on August 20, 1996. We will remember him forever. Jerell lived a great life. I know he was a very happy man, God bless us with a new home and everything anyone could ask for and for that I'm so greatful! I'm so glad Jerell got the experience some good things in life before he died. I was lucky enough to talk to him about death before he died. We had just buried his father and one day we were at the cementary and he showed me where he wanted to be when he died. Leave it to him, he wanted to be under a giant tree that left branches and nuts for me to keep clean. He told me if he left before me, he would come back and tickle my toes in my sleep and I still haven't felt no tickling yet. This is a true story. My brother (Timmy) and I had gotten Jerell's four wheel drive started a couple of weeks after his death. Jerell loved that truck and we had ran down the battery on it a couple days before he got killed. So it really tickled me to get it started again. It was after dark and I was going home in it. I was passing the cementary when the headlights on it went out and right back on. I know it was Jerell. I could see him standing there with that big smile and waving at me. I do feel Jerell done the right thing before he jumped out of that truck that day. He knew theres a God and I believe with all my heart he called on God before he took that fatal leap. Jerell was loved by alot of people. He had one big funeral full of people. I didn't even know Jerell knew so many people. We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and yes he will be forever missed.

"This man was my everything! I never thought we would ever part but God did. He gave me 18 years of marriage with this man plus the three we spent together before we got married. I will always love him and carry his memory in my heart. I can still see his precious, beautiful smile. A part of me died that day. I never ever want to go through a loss like that again. I will always love you!"
