We started attending Our Oasis Baptist Church in March 2012. From the moment we met Bro. Jerry we knew we were loved and considered family. A month later our youngest grandson, Andrew, drowned and Bro. Jerry was a constant support. On the one year anniversary of Andrew’s going to heaven, we celebrated by releasing balloons after church. Bro. Jerry really got behind the idea and wrote the most beautiful tribute. He made that day so extra special.
It became even more so when just 2 months later Bro. Jerry went home to heaven.
I miss Bro. Jerry’s hugs and when he would tease John he would always look at me and wink. He also said he never lost on Bible trivia night until I came to church.
Bro. Jerry was like no one I ever met. Only knew him for 15 months, but what an impact he made on my life. He opened Scriptures like nothing else. He left a big hole in my life.
