Very sorry for your loss. In my head I can see Jerry. I can see him talking just as he was back then when the kids were young. Someday that won't be just a memory., for there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous as stated in Acts 24:15. Because the wages paid sin is death. (Romans 6:23) So it becomes what people do after their resurrection that can lead to ever lasting life. We hope to see him soon.!

Thinking of you all Carol, Tim and Chip. So many wonderful memories of your family! Jerry always had something to say, whether you wanted to hear it or not. He was a tough dad but has 2 great boys that everyone loves. Wishing the family peace through these tough times.

Carol and family, you all have my sympathy, thoughts and prayers. I remember when Wayne and I had a lot of fun playing euchre with you and Jerry and our friends on Sat nights. Also of going to the Hudson Meth Church when the kids were young.
