    Sorry to hear this. Jerry was something else and I had a lot of good times around him growing up.

  • I miss you already, Big Brother. You were a good brother. Here’s a story I call, “Dead Bugs in the Teeth”
    You were bush hogging the field between the apartments and Snooky’s house. I was watching from the side when you pulled the big tractor near me and patted the fender. I scrambled up and sat on the fender, holding onto it with one hand and to the flagpole with the other. You resumed cutting very slowly. I asked for speed and you cranked her up to flying. It was so much fun, and I was grinning so big that when I jumped down there were dead bugs in my teeth.

    Hi, so sorry for your loss. Your dad wan a good man and very straight forward, we would always have conversations at Peaky’s when I would stop in for breakfast every now and again. He was a part of Princess Anne that you could always count on seeing every summer on his tractor going from job to job doing what he enjoyed. He will be missed by many that know him.
    So sorry,
