    A member of the family since I was 2, Jerry more like a brother to me than a brother-in-law. I was fortunate to spend a week every summer with Jerry & Twylia and they took me on family vacations too; Atlanta, Washington, DC & camping on the beach come to mind. From days on the boat, at the beach, on the ball field, or sitting outside by the lake, life with Jerry was fun. I’m glad he was in my life & will miss him. Virtual hugs to Twylia, Mark & Mike and the rest of the family.
