    To the family of Uncle Jerry –
    I want to express my condolences. I am sorry for your loss. I hope as you gather at the funeral to celebrate Uncle Jerry’s life that you are able to allow yourselves to grieve, but also that your gathering is a family reunion as you support and give strength to one another.
    I can still recall after so many years the sound of Uncle Jerry’s voice and laugh. I remember my dad (Milton) and him reminiscing over their past. They both intentionally became changed men, better men. I remember Uncle Jerry as one who became determined to help other men do the same. May he Rest In Peace.

    Rest in peace Old Friend


  5. Jerry had a profound effect on my life. He always loved me enough to tell me the truth about myself. Not a day goes by that I don’t use or think about something he taught me.
    Loved him with all of my heart.
    Thank you for everything Jerry C.


  6. After I Heard Jerry Lead I knew that the was hope for me. If it could work for him, it could work for me. Especially after being cracked with a boot, or shoe, or maybe both by his wife Bev !! That is what might of knocked some sense into him. I knew right then when he was sharing his experience that I stood a chance. He gave me hope that night at Mentor Plans. I believe it was in 91. I told him this, and he just smiled.


  7. Thank You Jerry for making a difference in my life. Proud to be a fellow Mentor Men’s home group member and grateful that our paths crossed! I told Cliff I have always admired what a great son he has been and the obvious love you have always had for each other. “Follow Gods example in all that you do, just as a loved child imitates his father”:
