    I worked with Jerry at Hallmark. He was always so much fun to be around. I know the last several years of his life was hard for his family. Just know you are in my prayers and he always brightened my day.

    Jerry was always sharing music with people – I don’t know how many CDs I borrowed. Seems like he had another one each time I saw him. “You should listen to this,” he’d say. And, he really enjoyed watching wildlife. He knew how many deer, and other animals, he had seen on a particular day. My sympathies to his family.

    Wendy, so sorry for your loss, it hard to lose a parent. Much love.

    I am so sorry about Jerry. I knew his mother very well when they had the Albertson Dairy and we bought milk from them, therefore became acquainted with Jerry and later kept in touch with him when he lived near Perry Lake and he sent me pictures of the deer near his house. Been emailing him – most recent as this week.
    My condolences to all his family. Vi Gottstein, Tecumseh (Perry)

    Though we didn’t know him by name he always had a welcoming smile for our kids when we entered church and an understanding chuckle for me as I herded the kids past him. Mass won’t be the same without his welcoming presence.

    I have known Jerry for many years, through Hallmark cards. He brought so much into ours lives at work. He was a jokester and a gossip. He always had something to say. And he kept us laughing. Jerry gave me a gift, but I am not sure that it was a good gift. He told me he needed someone to take his cat. And he was soposed to be a good cat, he loved children and women, and he was supposed to be a great mouser. Well Jerry brought him over and left him with us. He was going to be an inside cat, but not for long he wasn’t. He did not like children, he pooped on their beds.and he did not like women, he would rub up against my legs and then bite them, and I would bleed. But that cat lived for 18 years after we got him.and I grew to love him, and his evil ways. But I kept Jerry entertained with his antics. And tried to get him to take him back. We haven’t seen Jerry lately, but he was a good soul. And he will be remember by a lot of people fondly.

    , June 8, 2011 at 12:25 pm GoDaddy is ok but we prefer Hostgator. Really though, it shondlu't matter where your site is hosted. It comes down to what is on a given site when considering page load speed. IMO, videos, flash and some syndicated content can really slow a site down. Hope that helps.
