Remembering Jerry Beall and other officers who have given all in the line of duty. I salute you. I was only 9 when he fell, but remember Jerry and his parents, Ross and Irma. He was my dad's first cousin. I was attaching this memorial to my genealogy tree and saw that his son Sean and Brother-in-Law Tom left their respects. If either of them come back to this page and read this, I would love to connect with his/my family. contact me via [email protected]
