Jer


"Then he breathed his last and died and was gathered to his people, old and full of years. "
Genesis 35:29


It is with profound sadness that I tell you that my Father-in-Law, Jerry, whom so many of you have prayed for in these last few days, has gone to be with The Lord. Complications from a triple bypass and valve replacement surgery left him weak and unable to sustain. He passed away on Monday evening. He was 78 years old.

Jerry was a wonderful man who lived for his wife and children; always putting his family first. He was a proud father and grandfather, a decorated soldier for over 20 years in the Army, hard-working, honest, loyal and lived life with utmost integrity. He was a dedicated and loving husband for over 50 years to my mother-in-law Roann and she, along with all of us will miss him so very, very much. I ask that you please continue to lift our family up in prayer, especially Roann, as we transition through this difficult time.

Thank you again for all of your prayers.

Hugs,
Heidi
