  5. Iva and Family,My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time, following your loss of Jerry. My best memory of the last time I saw Jerry was that over the years he had not lost his sense of humor despite his challenges with speech and mobility. That will be how I remember him in mind…in his chair with laughter in his eyes at something he or someone else said. I know this loss will be hard for you now, but where he's gone, rejoice that he will be walking and joking again as he once did. Hugs and Prayers,Carla
