Papa Jerry died 3 months before I was born. I know very little about him, as the family rarely spoke of him. My dad just gave me some great pictures of him and I will post them as soon as I get them scanned.
Abundant blessings to "GOD'S SPECIAL ANGEL" for sponsoring my Nana's and Papa's memorials!! I continue to be blown away by the generousity of complete strangers!!! Please, if you have time, visit her loved ones!!
