    Jerry played the most valuable part in my adult life in the past twenty years through sharing his heart, wisdom and caring. Thank You My Brother for Your knowledge and grace. Rest well. I look forward to the day we meet again💞

    Charleen Lombard says:

    I came upon a Shaman
    An earthly minister of grace
    Who walked among us holding
    The sacred space we face
    His hands of light unfolded
    The miracles we hold inside
    Allowing us to connect
    To a world that we all hide

    May Native Angels rest gently on your spirit Bear
    Such a great loss Aho

    I am sorry for your loss. One of my fondest memory of Jerry were his jokes. He loved to make people laugh. May he rest in peace.
