“God called the name of my son and in his hands he lays.  Let him rest in peace.  Amen”

Dear Josie and Magali -- I just heard today of the loss of your brother Jerry. I am deeply saddened for your loss, as I am also one of 7 children, a Woodrow graduate, and lost my oldest brother to an accident in 2006. I understand the pain and emptiness left behind. May God be with you and all your family during this time of sadness. And come back to run with your RunOn family as soon as you can; we love you! --tm

Jerry I will miss crossing paths with you many times throughout the shift. I pull up your phone number and stare...I miss having fun, sharing jokes, and sharing frustrations. You made the day go easier with your wit and curmudgeonly sense of humor. Love to you, your family, and friends. Rest easy buddy.

Jerry was one of my favorite people and closest friends. There was never a dull moment and laughs were always insured. I've spent the last 24 hours crying and laughing, thinking about all the fond memories we shared. He will always be my buddy. Much love to the Balderas family.
