Message: HOW CAN I SAY THANKS FOR THE WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP WE SHARED AND WHAT A WONDERFUL SINGING PARTNER HE WAS. JERRY ALWAYS HAD SO MUCH JOY AND KEPT OUR SPIRITS UP. WE HAD A GREAT CONNECTION WITH OUR HARMONY IN OUR VOCALS AND OUR GROUP WILL NEVER BE QUIET THE SAME. I KNOW HE IS SINGING WITH THE HEAVENLY CHOIR NOW AND SO FREE FROM THE PAIN HE ENDURED. HE WAS A FIGHTER AND SANG SO MANY TIMES WHEN HE REALLY DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT; BUT HIS GREAT LOVE FOR SINGING ABOUT THE LORD KEPT HIM COMING. HE HAS GREATLY INSPIRED ME TO KEEP ON SINGING FOR I KNOW HE WILL BE THERE WATCHING OVER US AND SINGING HIS PART. CAROLYN, JOYCE AND ALL THE REST OF THE FAMILY - KEEP THE GOOD MEMORIES CLOSE TO YOUR HEART; THAT IS ONE THING THAT CAN NEVER BE TAKEN FROM YOU. I WILL MISS HIM BUT I KNOW HE IS FINALLY AT PEACE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND DON'T FORGET HIS TESTIMONY. LOVE YOU ALL, BERNADINE
