Jerralee, I still remember our days at Fresno State. Even though you could have gone to work for Fresno County, you only had eyes for Monterry. I was on military active duty the day you left us and could not attend the services, but still I wasn't alone. I was surrounded by other brothers and sisters in uniform who also understood the grief of that kind of loss. Many years have passed, but your memory burns bright and you are with me always.
