    I am so hurt. Jerry was a brother to me. I am sending all my love and sympathy to you Walter, Jeannie and Brent. May you forever be bowhunting deer. Gunning down those pheasants. And hitting the golf ball in those clouds. Don’t forget to use the orange balls up there. You will find them easier my friend. RIP my brother Jerry.

    Though we may not have spent a lot of time together as adults, as children being at the lake every weekend was a joy. I will cherish those moments forever. Jerry, you will be missed. To my aunt, uncle and cousins, please know that you are forever family and in my prayers.

    Sorry for your loss. I was a classmate of Jerry and played football with him in elementary school. I have a photo of Jerry, Scott Koons, and I in our pads and helmets set in formation (5th grade at Kennedy). He will be missed.

    thoughts and prayers go out to the Parmer family. I remember the Jr. high days hanging out at the mini-plaza eating burgers at Arthurs and riding around in his jacked up camero.RIP Jerry and look out for us.

    We were so sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing! We remember so well what fun we had at the bowling alley on the Monday evening bowling league. Jerry was such a great bowler! Our prayers are with you all in this most difficult time.

    You don’t know me but I was reading about your loss and felt impelled to write you. One thing that has helped me is the promise in the Bible of the resurrection found at John 5:28,29. Also, what is written at Revelation 21:4 is very heartwarming. I am so sorry about your loss and hope that these scriptures will give you hope.
