Jerry was such a good man of God, he never judged my past or struggles, only always encouraged me and told me to PRAY PRAY PRAY...he gave my girls the family pet sheep Charlie but warned...he thinks he's a dog...don't let him hurt you. He helped my girls kill their first water moccasin. We never got that fishing trip done...catch a big one for us all Jerry. We will miss u. God Bless his family and be with them.
