This is to Jerry a Very Good Friend

A man who loved life

Until the Very End.

His life was full of journeys not all could be told

But his loving wife Laurie will not let them get old

Whether Carnie or Crazy with a pool cue or a gun

She knows the stories and they’ll never be done.

He was always laughing with you

No matter how sick the joke or prank you would do

He’d give you a slap or say Bite Me

Then laugh out loudly and say Wee Wee Pee Pee.

He loved his cabin up at Smith Lake

The joy that it gave couldn’t be faked

Sharing its beauty with all that came

He’d take you fishing or hunting for game.

He partied up there whenever he could

No matter the season there always was wood

To kindle your fire or cook up your meal

Now it’s time to party or whatever you feel.

His faces were many but all have his Name

As can be seen on ANY wall of Shame

He always made you laugh no matter the day

Especially at parties cause he liked it that way.

Now that he’s gone we’ll miss him dearly

From his funny faces, funny deeds and most clearly

His Love & His Friendship & His Integrity.

This is to Jerry a Very Good Friend

A man who loved life

Until The Very End.

From Your Loving Family & Friends
