We have so many fond memories of Jerry. Thru the years our families shared so many special occasions together at the dinner table, to listening to Jerry's dad Roy playing his guitar and harmonizing with my Dad along with anyone else that wanted to chime in. A more recent memory was when we took a road trip out west with Linda & Jerry and another couple. There were so many funny things that happened, like driving off with the hatch on the car still open with all our luggage about to fall out to Linda panicking when she thought she had lost her pocket book while all the time Jerry had found it in the back seat, after which we all started calling each other "The Griswolds". This was a very special trip for all of us. I always enjoyed talking sports with Jerry as he was very knowledgeable and always kept up with the latest especially anything Gamecocks. We love you Jerry and are so thankful for all the great memories.
