  3. Dear Carol and family,

    Especially since I won’t be able to attend the July 25th Visitation, I want to pass along my condolences on Jerry’s passing. Jerry was a good man and we were blessed that he was a part of the Herr’s family all those years.
    May you find peace in these difficult days, and savor the memories of Jerry and all he meant to so many of us.
