    Mike and I are very saddened by the loss of our longtime friend. Jerry was always such a good and supportive man and a dear friend to us. He was a good father to our nephews Ray and J.J., they were blessed by having him to guide and nurture them in life. Blessings to you all.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states - And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.
