    Cathy, I’m so sorry that Jerry has passed. I didn’t know that he was not well. I remember him with his wild red hair and a very deep laugh. Know of my thoughts and prayers as you all come together to remember the good times and celebrate the hope that our faith gives us.

    I am sorry about your dear Grandfather, and I hope that these promises from the Bible will comfort you in this difficult time. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalm 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. Jerry will be missed. Peace be with you.

    We’re thinking of you and Natalie and wish you peace in the many happy memories of Jerry. That’s pretty awesome he still holds the track record at Stanberry R-II, what a feat. He was such a pleasant guy to know. Take care.
