    I will forever miss walking into work and seeing Kerry’s bright smile and listening to him tell me if we weren’t busy by 10 o’clock he’d be to town to bust out street lights just like Ernest T…..May the happy memories help you find comfort in the difficult days to come and love to you all !

    Jerry and family, we are sorry to hear of Kerry’s passing. He was always a delight and made us laugh when we would run into him at yard sales. Just know that our prayers are with you at this time. May your fond memories of times spent enjoying him in your family bring smiles instead of tears and may you have peace in knowing that he is at rest now and waiting for you in Heaven.

    To Lisa and Jerry,
    So sorry for the loss of Kerry. No words can express what you are dealing with right now. Just going through this with my dad just know that each day the Lord will carry you through along with family and friends. So lean on them and let them just be there for you even when you don’t think it will help. Just some one listening to you talk about your love for Kerry, the times you spent together, and the memories you made will heal your heart slowly. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

    We are so sorry for the loss of a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law, brother, uncle and friend to many. We couldn’t ask for a better father-in-law to our son, Aaron. We will never forget his laugh and love of life as well as the love for his family and dogs. May God comfort you in this time and help you remember the great times you/we all spent together. We love you all!!
