    Hey guys, so sorry about Jerry’s passing. What a great guy he was, I just wish I could have known him years earlier. As a square dance caller, I know a person who really enjoys dancing as soon as I meet them, and Jerry sure loved to dance. I always enjoyed being in his company, always glad to see him come through the door with Ruth and Ron to one of my dances. I knew I’d have some great conservation. I am sincere when I say he was the kind of person I want to grow old to be. a friend,
    Steve Casper
