  1. We are so very sorry to hear of Jerome’s passing – this is so hard to believe. Bill has a lot of fond memories of Jerome as a child, then we both have memories of the families visiting as we all got older. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bonnie and the family. We wish we could be with you for the visitation and funeral, however, we aren’t able to travel at this time. We just wanted you all to know that we love you very much.

  2. Daddy, Momma, Billy and I were sitting in the Outpatient waiting area when I read the Facebook post about Jerry. We sat there in disbelief, thinking that surely I had read it wrong. Then, it was confirmed. Words seem so inadequate at this time, but we want you all to know that we love you and we’re praying for God’s peace and comfort to surround you during the days and weeks to come. Jerry was a special man and his memory will continue to fill your lives.

  3. So happy to have known Jerry for the short time Daniel and Katy have been married. He was such a family man and was very evident that he lived to serve God. His death will live on in so many hearts of the people who knew him. It was a blessing to see him Saturday night and celebrate Katy’s birthday with he, Bonnie and Katy’s family. You will be missed – but Jesus has gained a friend who will claim his heavenly home and serve Him forevermore. MEMORIES will be God’s gift to Jerry’s loved ones.

  4. Bonnie, I was so sorry to hear of your loss! It’s so hard to loose someone that you’ve had such a wonderful life-time relationship with! I remember you both from Lafayette – it was obvious how close you were! May God wrap His loving arms of support and comfort to hold you up during this time!

    • Thank you so much Sue, He was one in a million. Everyone who knew him knew the God he served. My comfort is he is with His God and I know I can say It is well with my soul but my hurts worse than anything I could even be able to describe. He was one of the Godliess men some people will even come in contact with. He was born good and raised me . Thank you for writing. Love Bonnie and family. We now have 10 grandchildren and one great grandson due in Oct. Mark Samuel. Love Bible names. ;0) I like to think Jerry has already met “Sam”.

  5. I miss you so very much. The pain that comes with death is something over whelming without Jesus carrying the part I can not carry myself yet. It’s been a year and 3 months “J” ,however it still hurts so much. GOD Is So GOOD AND He is healing me . THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME BJ
