  1. You will be missed by so many people but we know your light lives on and the memories will never fade.

  2. To Jerry’s family- I remember Jerry as a happy guy who loved the holidays. We both came from the Dixon family of Buckingham so we both loved to eat good food. His mother was one of my favorite people.
    My condolences to his family and May the good memories always be with you.- sincerely Quinto Vallei, jr.
