I met Jerry in 1973 when I went to work for his firm, EDI. He was my boss and I loved him... what a generous, funny and intelligent guy he was. I will miss him a lot!

Jerry, my friend for 52 years, and business associate for many of those years. You are one of a kind and the best. I will always miss you, but know you are now with the Lord and will be exhibiting your wonderful smile and sharing your wit forever.

Jane and Family,
I was so sorry to hear of Jerry passing. Jerry was a very special gentleman. He was my boss but also my friend. We left St. Louis many years ago but Jerry remained a friend that I thought of often. Lots of great memories! Kathy
