    Jerry has a special place in my heart. I would just sit and listen to his stories, and get advice from him. I spent many hours on his sofa and he in his recliner. I will never forget him and I miss him dearly.

  2. Ann and Stein Asbjornsen says:

    Jerry was a very warm and generous neighbor. He and Dale came to welcome us into the neighborhood after we moved into our home. He did tell us many tales and was generous with his fruit he grew in his yard. Those satsumas were prize winners. He possessed a kind manner and in spite of his illness, he was always in good spirits.

    I remember working with Jerry at Escambia County jail when I was a nurse and he was a correction officer. I had the opportunity to enjoy his sense of humor and also his cooking skills when one Thanksgiving the nurses were invited to join the officers for a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
