    I'll always remember our celebrations and holidays together with Jerry and Vickie. You could always count on Jerry to cook some delicious ribs! My husband will always be grateful for the peppers he shared from his garden. Jerry was a kind and thoughtful man and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time of loss.
