    Sure will miss Uncle Jerry, he always made time to talk to me anytime I wanted. He took such good care of Barbara when she needed it the most. Jerry, Missy and Tonya were so lucky to get to have such a great man in their lives. Love you Uncle Jerry.

    I grew up west of Baker’s. I am two years older than Jerry. He was always polite and quiet. I met him years later at the sale barn. Same nice fellow.
    Way too young. Sorry for your loss.
