My little buddy throughout our days at Mansfield, may you rest in peace. Jerry was my best friend in college. We roomed together and loved to cook together as well. Our favorite dish was Hell Stew. That man could throw anything in a pot and it was a gourmet meal. He had a smile and a laugh that made everyone better that day. You will be missed brother Jer!
