Jerry, I will forever be lost without you! You were the most amazing father in law a girl could ask for! You loved and raised Timmy with unconditional love when you didn’t have too! You chose too! You made him into the amazing, loving and hardworking man he is today! For that I am forever grateful!!!! He always claimed you as his dad!!! He loved you that much!!! You always treated me with love and respect and loved my children as your own grandchildren! They adored you!! You cared for Tina as long as physically possible until you could no longer do it!!! Only then did you move on and bring an amazing woman, our Kim, into our lives!!! You always put everyone else first and I am glad you found happiness with Kim for the last years of your life! We will continue to love her and be there for her!!! Life is so unfair!!! First we lost Lexie, then Tina and now you!!! We are devastated!!! We will take care of Rosie for you and Devarion is in good hands too!!! You rest easy now with Jerry and Lexie and watch over us and keep us safe!!! I love you!!!

Kimberly, You have my deepest sympathy. Jerry called me when I was in Florida at my daughter's home for 6 weeks. I am so sorry I was not able to talk to him. I was not home, and he called on my home phone. I was so hoping you and he could enjoy Mitchell's car for many years to come. He was so happy with getting it. My God grant you peace, comfort and strength to continue on. Beverly Bidle
