So sorry to hear of Jerry's passing away. Ken did come to the church where the funeral was, but the only ones he talked to were Hank & Phyllis and someone else.
He said everyone was wearing a mask so he couldn't tell who was who. Sorry I couldn't be there, but I had a tooth pulled the same time as the funeral. Just to let you know you are in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. We knew him at Seymour Church and George's Citgo, and always enjoyed each contact with him. He was a wonderful man.
Our sincere sympathy to you and family in your loss.

Mark Huizingh
