We are so sorry, Carol, J.J. and Tammy. Jerry was a very sweet man and always concerned about others. He lived his love for the Lord in so many ways. Always putting others ahead of himself. I will miss his cheerful greetings on Sunday mornings before church services at Lakeview. He will be greatly missed. May GOD comfort you as only He can.

Jerry was a kind and humble man. I always enjoyed his presence at our Class of '62 Luncheons and our annual Class Gatherings. May God continue to bless his legacy and family as I know he will., Ron Riggs and Family, Lakeland, Florida
