Condolences

To Ginny, Kelly, Sarah and your families - my heat goes out to you at the too soon and sudden loss of your beloved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather. We haven't seen much of the family in the past years but I remember the earlier year; that Corvette was a beauty! You have been in your house in Apple Creek for most of your 47 years of marriage and I have seen so many improvements done over time, and especially like the BARN. He was a loving and thoughtful man. I hope you always appreciate the gift of him from God to your family and look forward to reuniting with him when your time comes to "pass through the veil" . May you look to Heavenly Father for comfort and guidance, is my prayer. Sandy

God has a special place for loving fathers like Jerry. He will be watching over his family from a good place. God Bless r

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Ginny, Kelly, Sarah,
Our thoughts & prayers are with you & your families.

We are saddened by your loss. Praying for you and the family.

Ginny and family, I am in disbelief and saddened to hear about Jerry. Many thoughts and prayers for each one of you as my heart breaks for you all. Please if you need anything, Id be willing to help you.
Love to all
Lisa White

Ginny, Kelly, Sarah, I was stunned to hear about Jerry, Heather sent an email asking me if I knew Jerry passed away. Seems not long ago I talked with him at Lowes. Did not know he was sick. I'm so sorry words I cannot express how bad I feel for all of you. I know the tremendous loss you and your family feel at this time, it's really hard and at times still hard for me with the loss of Shirley. There simply not enough words to express your loss, so very sorry. Lots of prayers, Arthur Geib.
