    My heart is breaking for all of you right now, but I am rejoicing with all you at the same time. Nothing could ever take the precious memories we all had with him while he was here on earth. Although we will miss him, I for one am rejoicing because I know he is in heaven making oatmeal cookies for all of us when we meet again. I love each and everyone of you. Aunt Elaine, Julie, Jean Anne, Jerry Allen, Jon Andrew, and all of his grandchildren, and extended family members. Praying for comfort for all of you.

    We are so sorry that Jerry is gone. Our deepest condolence to Elaine and the Young family. I have known Jerry since high school and many years at ALCOA. Will miss his big smile and his love of life. May God Keep Jerry in his Arms.

    I am sadden to hear of your loss. My father Robert Tilley worked with Jerry at Alcoa. My father spoke of him often for I remember as a child hearing his name. I believe they may have ridden together some , but I’m not sure for I was young. Thoughts and prayers for your family.
