I met Mrs. Jerry at Saint Edward Church in Nashville, TN and immediately felt close to her because she was born around the same time that my own father was. I began visiting her on weekends when she was placed at Hickory Woods Rehabilitation Center. Later she moved to Bethany Rehabilitation Home and by then we had become very good friends. I knew how much she liked getting out of her room and go outside –whether permitted- or at least to the sun room, and therefore I felt that I could help her out that way. Before I knew it, over five years have transpired and visiting her every Sunday had become part of my weekly practices. She was very likable and up until the very end she kept her sense of humor and I can say that we shared some good times together. I miss her but I know that she had a wonderful and long life, was loved by many people, and especially by her beautiful family members. I'm happy to have been called her friend.
