My deepest condolences to Brian, Vicki and extended family. Jerry reached out to me when Mom passed (I was going through hell with my current stepdad at that time) He was a beacon of light when I needed it most and we always got along great. Jerry is definitely missed but I’m so glad he was baptized and saved. Love Donna
