    Jerry was a long time friend and fellow church member. Jerry and Anita square danced with me and my wife Nelda and nelda and Anita both passed from this life close to the same time and Jerry and I consoled one another in our sorow and loss. He was such a “live wire” and I, along with many, will miss him. I am saddened that Carolyn and I were out of town and didn’t know of this until we saw it in the paper when we returned today. You will be missed Jerry. Godspeed. Doug Miller.
