I am very sorry to hear of the death of my cousin. Jerry was about 14 years older than I, and we saw each other regularly at Mamaw's house during our childhood and early adult years. I have not seen him in probably 35 years, but did keep up with the family through Uncle Ralph and Sue. I am Herbert McFarland's (Ruth's brother) daughter. Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of a loving husband, father, and grandfather. My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of grief. I also celebrate with you the joy of Jerry's victory upon receiving his eternal reward as a faithful servant of our Lord.
