The last time I contacted Jerry by email and did not get a response. I had not seen him since he had moved to DC. I remember playing hide and seek with him on 348 Oakland Ave. He always seemed so mature. A cousin that I knew as a young one. But as he moved on I continued to hear of him from his Mom, my Aunt Ann and other family members. I leave him with my favorite blessing.May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Uncle Jer, I remember playing “school” with you when I stayed with Nannie, which was a lot. You let me drive your Barracuda and I felt so cool. Your pain is gone and you are at peace. Miss and love you. Winnie
