Memories Timeline


  1. One thing I will always remember about Jerry is his funny sense of humor. You would rarely see him without a smile on his face or a joke to tell. He was proud of his family and loved Elaine dearly. I am thankful for the love he had for Seth and that he always treated us like family!

  2. Jerry was a kind and generous uncle. It was so fun to visit and stay in his little cabin! He was always smiling. I know he lived a happy life, surrounded by love. Sending love to Aunt Elaine, and my cousins Brittany and Daniel.
