So many great memories and laughs from the many years we worked together. Jerry was always an 'officer's supervisor'. His no-nonsense, common sense approach to a challenging job was exhibited in the respect and admiration expressed by all who knew him. May God's Peace be with him and you as your journey continues. Mitch and Gaye Willette
