“Dear Family
I knew Jerry as my neighbor when he was living with Mike Dirks and I was living next door. He was a great guy and friend while I lived there. I just saw him a few months ago I think at Hy Vee, we talked for a short bit, it was nice to see him again. I'm really sorry for all you are going thru, you have my sincere sympathy .
Hope you all remember the good times.
God bless. ”

“I always thought very highly of Jerry. He seemed to have a natural dignity about himself, very quiet and unassuming, but with solid confidence. I felt that he was sincerely appreciative of the friendships he had. We need more like him.”
