Our deepest condolences to Conni and Jerry's family. We will always remember Jerry and his trip to Belize and also being at the Lakehouse on Reynolds Lake with him and Conni. Jerry was a great guy, always with a big smile. Wish we could be with you at this time, Conni, but we're happy you're surrounded by family and friends. Rest in Peace, Jerry.
