    So sorry you left too soon. You were always a great guy and a friend to everyone. Such an easy going nice person. I haven’t seen you since High school but became FB friends with you. It seems you never changed. In High School we hung out at you house a lot and you were so funny and friends with all. Just a really nice guy. God Bless you and hope you are happy just riding your motorcycle in Heaven. No worries and we will see you soon.

    My sincere condolences to Paula and all of Jerry’s family. May God watch over and keep my grade school and high school classmate in his loving arms and Grace, and continue to watch over and comfort his family. I’m so happy I was able to see and speak with you in October at the restaurant. Godspeed my friend….
