Condolences

Thank you for your service. Condolences to the family.

I am sorry to hear about Jerry passing. The Canal Fulton Ramrod Club has lost a longtime member who continually supported the club. I know Jerry has not shot there in many years, but I enjoyed having him stop in every now & then to talk. I grew up at the club & have known Jerry since I was a kid. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to Shirley.

Hi Shirley,
We hated to hear of Jerry's passing. Something you hate to hear. You know it will happen at some point, but it's never easy. I always enjoyed sitting in their booth at Friendship when I wasn't shooting. Always invited in and giving me a soda. Jerry and I always had a good time competing against each other during the Clubs winter shoots. We will sure miss both of them. Sorry we are not going to attend the funeral/ mass over concerns of Covid.
Take care and be safe!
Bob & Donna Dickson
