I never forgot that Jerry was my birthday brother. We were born on the same day, same year, in the same hospital, grew up in the same town and went to the same school. Loved his smile and laughter. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Jerry was one of the good guys I got.to call my brother on the toll road. Taught me alot and always had a smile on his face even when I screwed up and made our job harder. Rest easy my friend till we meet again.
Jerry was a great guy I use to live beside him in LaGrange.
