Sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. Have many happy memories of him growing up and coming to our house. We loved Christmas and seeing all of Jerry's trains and presents being taken over by Uncle Gene and the men while we ran around outside. Then I remember him and Donna getting married. So many good times. So many great (and some sad) memories.
