Condolence & Memory Journal

I am looking forward to seeing Jerry again when I'm called Home to be with Jesus. What a lovely gentleman. I met him through church and he was just a delight and had a great sense of fun. Such a warm smile. (And yes! Twinkle in his eyes and beautiful white hair!) I know he's dancing streets of gold, but I will miss him on this side. Hugs to Virginia and the rest of the family. He truly radiated the love and joy of Christ!

I'm so sorry to hear about Jerry.
I worked with him at Walmart in Altoona. He was such an amazing man, caring, funny, full of charm. He'll be greatly missed.

What a man and what a legacy! As his friend and fellow prayer partner there is
much to be admired about Jerry. Walmart was fortunate to have Jerry as a
trusted employee. His work ethic was without equal and could be depended upon to be there and give consistent energy to his work. He was a proud grand parent who loved each of his grand children taking an effort to bring them to Awana week after week and keep them in his prayers. His love for Virginia was strong and faithful. Never a bad word about Virginia passed his lips. As his faith grew his favorite reading of scripture was demonstrated by his prayers. I loved to hear his prayers as they demonstrated his strong faith in God. His siblings, children and grand children can treasure their memories of Jerry's love and character. As I stated earlier, "what a man" and we count our association with Jerry as a real blessing.
