Dear Betty, Scott, Wade. I just heard about Jerry and and was shocked, my heart is in pain. I was going to come and see you all when I got time from taking care of my mother in law. I have a picture of Aunt Jane when she was young and one of all the aunts and uncles with Jerry, Normie, Eddy and Connie when they were little. I will bring it home when I can. Love you all and am praying for you all in this time of your grief. Love Susan and John Boone
