I worked with Jerry at the Town of Black Mountain. He always had a smile and a joke to tell. He was devoted to his Mother and other family members. He was generous and kind to everyone he met. I will miss his smiling face.

Jerry and his brother, Mike, have gone beyond the call of duty to help care for extended family members for more than the past twenty years. As a member of the extended family, we are all indebted to both of them for what they have done to assist family members.
