    Sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. He and I were friends all the way through school and roomed together at UA. I consider Jerry one of my best friends and regret that we lost touch years ago as we both went separate ways in our lives. May God give his family the strength and comfort they need during this time of loss and sorrow.
