Dearest Nancy, i just had a call from Jeanie. She said she had Sharon strongly on her mind and she just happened to see on the internet that sweet Jerry passed away only days ago. We had no idea. Needless to say we are shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are in faithful prayer for you and Sharon and family. Now Jerry is with his daddy. You carry on now and take care of those grandkids. Love to you all. In Jesus, Jackie Zachay

Michael and I are so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nancy, Sharon, and family in this time of loss. God Bless you all.

Sam, I wish I were able to cut out of the gym to see you during visitation, but even though I can't be there in person, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad occasion. Peace be with you! Kate

I pray that all will find comfort thru the loss of Jerry... I graduated with him in 1980. He was always a good hearted person, and friend. He will be truly missed by everyone, especially the Class of '80.. He is now looking over all and catching up with his dad, other family members and a few of our classmates that we have lost in the pass. Jerry will be missed... I am so glad I had moved to Cadiz and was able to have such a good friend/classmate.....

We send our condolences. May God give you the comfort needed. The Cubs / Cardinals discussions will be missed.
