    Sarah, we are just so very sorry about this huge loss. Also we send sympathy to Jerry’s family. Our hearts hurt. Jerry was a giver, a kinder, more generous man we have seldom met. In Larry’s long ministry there were about four folks he said should be elders for life– due to their faith, their wisdom, their compassion, their kindness. Jerry was one of the four. We are grateful that Jerry is now walking with Christ, but also loss is so so hard. We are holding you close.

    Sarah, we were so sorry to hear of your loss. Jerry was such a special person! I’ll never forget him stepping in for the Father/Daughter Brownie dinner with Torrie. He was such a caring and giving soul with a wonderful sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Dan, Stephanie and the rest of the family.

    Jerry was such an amazing man and huge influence on so many kids like me! I hope in heaven he only has to eat fruit cups when he wants to and there are Boxcar Willie tapes on repeat for him. Love and prayers to the whole family.
