    So sorry to hear about Jerry’s passing! He was director of my Sunday School department. He was a kind man, he loved the Lord and served him. A fine Christian!
    My sincere sympathy for his passing! Praying for his family and friends! He will be missed! I always enjoyed him singing in the choir! As he sang praises to his Lord and Savior!

    Arlene,
    I am so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I mourn his loss but rejoice that he is in the arms of Jesus. You two were such an inspiration to me in choir at Calvary and I enjoyed your company before choir practice. I am praying for comfort and peace for you and your family.
