    My prayers and thoughts are with all of you left here to grieve you loss. I loved Jerry and remember wonderful times I spent with him when we were young. He was a teenager at that time. I did see him throughout the years occasionally. I loved him and think of him fondly. May you have peace in remembering his gentle, loving ways.

    Uncle Jerry was a person I looked up to all my life. He and Grandma Alice spent all the holidays with us. He was a great brother to my Dad and he and Aun Nonie took excellent care of our Grandmother in her last years. He lived a strong. Christian life and was a model of a gentleman. I still can hear his laugh lighting up a room. And you would never forget if you heard him talk like Donald Duck. He will be missed by his daughters and their families as well as by the Jordan branch of the family. May he and Nonie reside in heaven together, reunite with Dolores and Gene and Alice.

    Uncle Jerry will be always be in my most cherished memories of my family. He was such a kind man with an infectious laugh. My father and Uncle Jerry would often laugh together making our family get-togethers so much fun and joyful. He and Aunt Nonie were model parents and model Christians. Great people! He will be missed.

    My sympathy goes out to Jerry’s and Nonie’s daughters and their families. . I remember Jerry and Nonie as dear friends with whom we shared many good times and always much laughter. My husband, Howard , and Jerry grew up together and my sister-in-law ,Patricia, as a five year-old tomboy remembers how kind Jerry was to her as she followed their neighborhood group of boys. My heart and prayers are with you today.
