Good-by Jerry


Today I have lost a friend. The PGR has lost a brother. A kinder more gentle man this world will not know. Jerry, you will be missed my friend. From what I have learned, Jerry died unexpectedly this morning in his sleep.

Jerry lived in north central Indiana. I rode with him on many Patriot Guard missions. From Valparaiso, IN to Covington, KY, Jerry stood for those that have stood for us. Through freezing rain and 110° heat index days, Jerry stood. Always with a story to lighten your mood or a hug/hand-shake to steady your stance, Jerry was there for us all.

Rest now my friend. I can only imagine the heroes in heaven so glad to finally be able thank you in person. Until we meet again, you will not be forgotten.

Respect,

DNR

God bless you Triker for everything you accomplished and stood for.

On the ride thru heaven, make sure to keep the paint up and the rubber down. Ride free, my brother.

I'm sorry for the loss of a friend. He was lucky to go in his sleep, though. There are lot worse ways to go.
