    Dear Libby Jerry and Julie, I am so very sorry for your loss. Jerry was a brave and good man and I can only imagine how you will miss him. Now he is pain free and home with our Lord. Sally Calland Roth

  • William Burns says:

    Dear Libby. I feel sad you lost Gary. I learned you also lost your sister Melody the same day. I am sure you are feeling extreme pain of losing your husband and sister. I did not know Gary, but he must have been a good husband and father for the two of you to be married 58 years. As a teenager, you were a dear friend to me when I needed a friend the most. I hope you and your children will pass thru this portal of grief and your lives will be filled with good memories of the good times everyone shared with Gary. The last two lines of the Irish Prayer say what is my wish for you: “and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.” Your Teenage Friend, Bill Burns
