We lost a wonderful friend. We will miss all the stories he would tell and all the times he and Jimmy went out to eat. If he knew you liked something he would try to bring it to you. He brought me Elvis coins and it would light up my day.
God Bless his family at this time.

Jimmy & Lois

I will miss running into Jerry at Wal-Mart and Harvey's. He always told me tales about my husband Charles from when they were young in Reidsville. Charles always considered Jerry a true friend. May God Bless his family at this time and in the future.

To Jerry's Family...There are not enough words to express my deepest sympathy to you over Jerry's passing. It is hard for me to believe that this fine young man I knew at VHS has now left his earthly abode. He was always such a gentleman and a very kind person to all. May God bless all of you and give you a "Peace that passes all understanding," and may He hold you in the "Palm of His hand."
