Dear Marilyn,
Occasionally in life you meet a very special person whom it is a privilege to call a friend.
Although, Mother no longer has the capacity to express her feelings in words, in my heart, I know she is so lucky to have both you and your husband as great friends. Your family was fortunate to have Jerry as a husband, father, and grandfather.
Jerry will always be missed, never forgotten.
With all our love and deepest sympathy,
Ellen and David Moore
