After returning home from the army and attending ETSU Jerry gave me a job pumping gas – sorry Jerry for all the credit cards I forgot to return to the owner! Rest in peace!
Nelda and family, my prayers and thoughts are with you. I had planned to come to funeral but was not able to. God bless you all.
