    Twylia, Mark, Mike and family. I am so heartbroken to see that Jerry has passed. You both meant so much to us. Through laughter and tears. Through both daughters weddings and births of their children. Jerry welcomed me to CP&L when I employed there. You were one of the first to know of our engagement. May God grant you peace. Love to all.

    Sending all of our love, Aunt Twylia, Mark, and Mike. I will forever treasure my childhood memories with Uncle Jerry, both on the boat and on the shore. He made me feel like one of his own kids; I feel so fortunate to have grown up so close to my extended family. Holding space for you in my heart during this time. Love you!
