Jerry, you were my mentor. the one who spoke up for me when some supervisors doubted that I would "make it" as a Henrico County officer. One sergeant said "Jerry saw something in you, and that's enough for me". I thought about you all through my 47 year career, and tried to be the kind of officer and detective you would have been proud of. When your brother, Tommy, came on, we became very good friends, as well. Rest in peace, my brother.
