To a wonderful man who, without knowing, showed us all how to love and care for our family by the example that he set every day. So happy to have witnessed those blessings in my life. You are truly one of a kind. Much love and peace to the family who carries your memory in their hearts. <3 Melanie

Jerry and Alma were and still are 2 of my favorite people! I enjoyed bringing Barb to visit her sister and brother in law. So many laughs and fun! Such a beautiful family! They along with Barb are in my heart forever.
Unfortunately cannot make it to the services, but I will pass by the cemetery one day to pay my respects and lay flowers on the graves. God bless yawl, you are in my prayers.
