God Bless, Paulette Paulette Schwartz, May 31, 2007 Over many years Jerry and I did business from the Feed store to buying hay from the feild to County Health Inspector.I always enjoyed talking with him. Jerry pulled my Chevy truck from the mud with his Ford & and went on for hours it seemed about Fords. I helped him move cows and ran them into the wrong pasture. Jerry handled that well.Jerry was always fair, honest and a man I respected.I hope the Lord brings comfort to you during this time. Raymond D. Kluger Raymond D.
