    Prayers for your family. I remember the last time I saw Jerry. Pat and I was pulling into Kmart and I saw the big back hoe in the fire lane. I looked at Pat and said, I'm pretty sure I'm going to know this person. As we got closer, sure enough it was Jerry. He was waiting on his side kick lil Larry Lane to come out of the store. Always made me laugh. You will be missed.

    No matter what you always had a big smile. When Jake DJd at Lenny's you'd always request the Stones. Then a big smile and thanks when the Stones music played.

  18. Jake & Connie Patten

    You always had a smile when we saw you. You will truly be missed. R.I.P. Jerry you had a hard fight the last few months.

  19. VG

    Death is an enemy to us all, taking those we love and leaving much pain and emptiness of heart. Jesus Christ promised to call all those in the memorial tombs, they will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28 & 29) Yes, the resurrection will be a reality on a peaceful earth with eternal blessings. (Psalm 37:29, Acts 24:15) Hope this will give you a measure of comfort.
