Mick and I just became aware of Gerald's passing. We both liked Jerry. He was a kind and gentle soul. God rest his soul.

Sad to hear that Jerry has passed away. He was a good friend to have. He's probably playing a round of golf with mom and dad and having a Schlitz.

May you rest in peace while soon to be singing and playing your guitar in heaven's choir. You put a smile on our faces at Ft Randall Dam and more.

So very sorry to hear of Jerry's death. He was a good friend in high school. A good man like him most certainly is walking with God and his family who departed before him. My sympathy to the family!

I'm sure going to miss Waldorf! Growing up he was always at the Body Shop and would help me with homework! Not long ago I was having trouble with my car after work and he stopped to help me out. Always willing to help out.

Goodbye Jerry. I always enjoyed seeing you and visiting. You always asked about my parents.
