Dearest Joyce. I have prayed diligently for Jerry through his illnesses, but God had other plans for him. He is now healed and in Heaven. Jerry was a great friend through the years, and a witty personality that was shared with all. I'm sure that he was so grateful for you as his loving wife. The love and care that was given was to him by you could not be surpassed. May you, and Jerry's children find peace and comfort knowing that he is not longer in pain. Love you my sweet friend.
