Jerry, there are no words to describe how much I miss you and our phone visits we had every weekend. It broke my heart that I could not come for your service and burial, but know that you would understand. I know you are now pain free and enjoying a wonderful time now with Mama and Daddy, and all the grandparents. Be on the lookout for me, as you never know when I might join you all. You will always be in my heart and on my mind. I Love You, Your Sister, Joyce
