Carlene, was so sorry to learn of Jerry's passing. I have so many good memories of you and Dean and your folks. Also remember Jerry from East High even tho he was a couple years ahead of me. May God surround you with His love and peace and give you comfort at this time. Know you and your family have many great memories of your years together. May your grief be somehow lighter knowing it is shared by all of us who love you.
