    We are saddened to read that Jerry passed away. I have known him and his family most of my life. When our Dad died in 1990, Jerry bought most of his tools at the auction.
    We will miss seeing him around Waveland and at Wallace on Monday nights. RIP, Jerry.

    Rita and Family:
    I was so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I was hoping, as you were, that he would be able to come back home. I won’t be able to come to the calling or the services, due to work and prior commitments. I will always remember him being on the mower and how quick he could mow his yard. Also, he came over and moved a huge limb out of my yard for me a few years back. He was a good neighbor to have, always willing to help if he could. Again, I am so sorry and I will miss seeing him outside puttering around Thoughts and Prayers are with all of you. Take care.
