Jerry - I haven’t seen you in over 30 years but it was great to reconnect with you on Facebook. What was even more amazing to me was how we think exactly the same way! I would think of you during an extremely difficult time of my life and it was a source of strength for me! (Kind of wild - considering I don’t remember seeing you since I was 6 or 7 years old!) I wish you peace bud. You will be with me for for the rest of my life. God bless brother! 🙏
