Worked with Jerry at Stone Container years ago and more recently took care of him at where I work. Jerry was a great and loyal friend. He was funny; he was always joking around with everyone. When I was having a bad night, he always had a way of cheering me up. I am glad I was given the honor of having him in my life. He will be truly missed!
