  3. Oh the stories we could share! Uncle Jerry was quit the character! Also telling stories and making jokes! Smart and witty! My grandma Clady told me a story once that my mom and her went somewhere and they left me with uncle Jerry for him to babysit me. I was 4 years old. My grandma said when they returned they found me running around giggling n laughing non stop just running from wall to wall in the living room- uncle Jerry had given me a candy bar and a can of beer with a straw in it. To hear my grandma Clady tell that story and see Jerry’s face as he grinned and shrugged his shoulders. LOL I WILL MISS YOU UNCLE JERRY, until we meet again on the other side of the veil, find rest n peace! LUV YOUR NIECE “CARMI”
