Dear Backdoor Neighbor, Jim and I are so sorry to learn of Jerry's passing and will greatly miss seeing him on the patio grilling out, reading his papers, playing with Candy or Snickers, or entertaining his family and grandchildren. I know you will miss him terribly but know that he is at peace now and suffering no more. May your loving memories of your long wedded life together sustain you through this trying time. With our sincere condolences, Jim and Sara Wymard
