Has sido un ejemplo de coherencia y lealtad a la Palabra. Tu inmensa humanidad, tu gigantesco corazón latía por y para hacernos visible el inmenso regalo de la Palabra. Y cuando te enteraste de que el Señor te estaba preparando ya tu habitación en el Cielo, te pusiste manos a la obra con tu One Foot in a Banana Peel y nos volviste a demostrar que estabas henchido del Espíritu y que, en cualquier situación, incluso en la más dura en apariencia, Dios nos puede elevar hasta hacernos invencibles y eternos. Gracias Jerry por tu ejemplo. Sigue escribiéndonos desde el Cielo. Puede que no podamos leerte en un papel o en la pantalla del ordenador o del iPhone, pero te seguiremos leyendo en los ojos de Magda, Desiré, Christian, Caleb e Isabeau. Y también en los ojos de todos nuestros demás hermanos. Fuerte y eterno abrazo

Jerry, we didn't spend to much time together, with all of that of living on the other side of the ocean, but that few moments were all the time laughing and did sinceiryously grew a great deal of inspiration and respect for someone still craking a joke even when it hurt you to speak.
You were a great man and you left a pretty big hole that is ours duty to fullfill with lots of laughs as you would wiss
Have fun there up there and drink one from me

In the short time I've known Jerry and Maggie, I have been impressed by the devotion they hold for each other and the strength they have shown through their faith. They are an inspiration to all they meet. My deepest sympathy to the family on the loss of such a wonderful man.
