Hello Jane, Steve, Mark, Kim and Anne I am so sorry for your loss. Betsy got ahold of me the other day to let me know. My heart goes out to you all. I hope that you will find strength from each other to help yourselves through your loss. I have so many great memories of growing up in the neighborhood. Softball games, School bus rides, walking the hill, how about the bee swarm? Remember that Anne? We had some good times. Jane your home was always a great place to come and you always made me feel welcome. I'm trying to get Mom to move out to Colorado since we are all gone from Mansfield. I will be home Nov 6th picking her up and we are driving back to Colorado, she is going to stay for awhile. Will only be in town a few days. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family. Love to all Judy

Dear Jane and Family: We were surprised when Lynn Lugibill sent email of Jerry's stroke. We immediately put Jerry in our prayers and in particular, St. Jude. It seems he spent his lifetime well with all his good works and a lovely family. May our Blessed Lord console you and give you all strength. Sincerely in your time of sorrow. Rich and Anne Bortoli

I was so sad to hear of Jerry's passing. He was obviously a stand up man given his service to others in the community, and clearly a very dear person who was loved by his family. I am happy for the time that family and friends will have together reminiscing the memorable times of Jerry's life.
