    Sharon & Family – My sincere condolences. Jerry used to come out to my Grandfather’s bait shop (Ray’s One Stop Bait Shop – owned by Ray Wheeler) where I worked from the age of 9 to 14 and he was always so good and kind to me. Jerry always made me laugh. I moved away from Frankfort in 1976 and once when I was back visiting my Mom (Patty (Wheeler) Gann – we were at Arnie’s and I saw Jerry and we reminisced about the good old days. He had not changed a bit. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
