Jerry and I go way back, my Mom and Dad were friends with your Dad for years and we always bought our cars from him and our friendship picked up from that and bring classmates. You were my best buddy. Sitting in the PIT at school laughing at teachers, or when you would check on me and my baby daughter while on patrol when my husband was overseas. You were a caring person watching out for people.
The day of the accident my Mom called me. My heart broke. When I saw Brenda broke even more.
I know you are watching over your family and friends.
