    Dearest Marilyn, We are so sorry for your loss, and for the fact that we never got to meet you. David and Jerry were very close friends in High School, and for years after. Once we moved to Carolina Beach in 1983, we lost a lot of contact with him. Please know that we both have such fond memories of our times shared with Jerry, David especially. He was a genuine and gentle man, and we will miss his amazing smile. May our dear heavenly Father grant Jerry's soul rest, and may you and your family members find peace in God's loving arms.
