So sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. He was such a sweet man and you two were perfect together. I remember fondly all those evenings we’d sit in lawn chairs in your driveway on Sheffield just talking and drinking iced tea. Jerry was the one who convinced me to try my tea unsweetened, said I’d like it better once I got used to the taste. He was right and I never put sugar in my tea again. And I also remember the day you gave my daughter, Aubree, a haircut in my kitchen. She was only 3. Those were the days, huh. Take care, Julia. God’s peace be with you in this difficult time.

The thing about Jerry that I will always think of when I hear the word, Jerry Guy, was his friendliness and his smile. He always had that smile on his face. You really took good care of him, Julia. Now take care of yourself. The Lord will be with you.
