  5. Jerr Lee,
    You were the sweetest kid and grew up to be a fine man. You were like my third little brother. You were always willing to help anyone. Your laughter was contagious and full of true joy! I’m going to miss you!! Doesn’t seem real that you will not be walking into mom’s house saying “well hey Rene where you been” Love you!!

  6. RIP My friend! We had a lot good times in our younger years. Until we meet again,God bless you and your family.

  7. To the family, I am sorry for the grief that you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue to look to him when he ” will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, and pain will be no more “Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing ” 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.
