    I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Jerry, He was a good, Christian man. He was sweet, kind and extremely nice. He was one of a kind. He will be missed. It breaks my heart, that he is no longer here.
    But I know without a shadow of doubt, he is sitting with Jesus. No more pain, no more struggling to breathe, he is healthy and whole. Rest assured he is in heaven having the time of his life. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I pray for peace and comfort for his children, grand-children and all of his family. Rest easy, Mr. Jerrry till we meet again.

    Love, Stacey M
