Jerry was a close friend of mine during our years at Assumption school. We went to that school and church for 8 years together. I was lucky enough to be invited for overnight weekend stays at his parents' farm on NW road. Jerry would come to my family's home in Bellingham for reciprocal weekend stays. I had fun being a "country" kid and he enjoyed being a "city slicker" for those fun weekends. I'm thankful that I was able to see Jerry and Janis at a class reunion we attended for our Assumption class. We rehashed a lot of old times and fun adventures. Jerry liked to have fun and wasn't afraid of much. That caused us to be in hot water quite a few times but it was really just good old fun for us boys. He's still a part of my childhood memories and always will be. So long Jerry, I'll always remember you as the good guy you were.
