Lynn, David, Michael, Jennifer and family and friends: My thoughts and prayers are with you at the loss of Jerry. He was a kind, loyal, and faithful Christian brother and friend. I will miss his wit and puns, and his original perspective. Many prayers are with you all and I know God will give you the strength you need for the days ahead. Sending a huge hug from Virginia. Many hearts are with you….

My heart hurts that your gone so soon, but I know you’re in a better place. I will truly miss you as well as you and your family, you are in my prayers.

Suzy George says:

I will miss Jerry’s views on life, his frequent nostalgia, and his constant inspiration to seek God in all things. I watched the season opener of Blacklist and started crying, knowing Jerry was missing it, he would’ve been so pleased to find out our beloved FBI agent Elizabeth Keen was still alive, smile. 24 years ago, we came out of service and both mentioned loving the poem that was cited, i.e., The Darkling Thrush by my favorite poet, Thomas Hardy. That poem now makes me think of Jerry’s new everlasting life. The poem speaks of bleak things, how hard and troubling life is in the bitter cold unyielding landscape. But near the end the speaker hears a small aged bird overhead that is singing with amazing joy. The end goes: “So little cause for carolings Of such ecstatic sound Was written on terrestrial things afar or nigh around, That I could think there trembled through his happy good-night air, Some blessed Hope whereof he knew, and I was unaware.” Love to Lynn and the family – Suzy

They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
