    So sorry to hear of Jerry’s death. I have a lot of great memories from when we were growing up at Mama Culberson and Daddy Culberson’s house when we were kids. Prayers to Glenda and their children and grandchildren. Also to his Mom, Ruth and all of his siblings. May God be with you and give you peace during this difficult time.
