    Jerry, I’m so glad I got to know you. You are one of the kindest, caring, considerate people I’ve ever met. I love that you and Donnie did a ‘guy thing’ with that car ride. Both of you enjoyed that tremendously. We will all be together before you know it, and what a better neighborhood for all of us. I love ya man. Thanks for just being you. You did make the world a better place. You are a fine example of manhood and of serving our wonderful country. I surely hated the pain you were in there at the last, but aren’t things beautiful now?! Don’t worry about your Mom, I’ll watch out over her, much to her dismay. See ya soon.

    To my big brother who meant so much to me . It wasn’t easy just to try and be like you; I always looked up to you and I know I could never be the man you were, but you sure kept me on my toes. I will surely miss you . You know you left an impact on my life for the better and I’m already missing our phone calls we shared and all the wisdom you tried to bestow in me. The only thing that makes me smile about you now is knowing you are in a better place. I love you brother and miss you and will see you again I know. God bless.
