Pam, I cannot begin to express to you how shocked and saddened I was to hear of Jerry’s passing. Truly a wonderful guy and friend. I first met Jerry T Al Kaufman’s heating and air conditioning when I answered the phone there as a teenager. I have multiple stories from those days that make me smile. He never ceased to be a friend from those days forward. My deepest thoughts are with you and may Gods peace get you through this. I promise he’ll not ever be forgotten and always remembered with a smile….what a loss to this community. Much love to you Pam….

Pam I’m so sorry to hear of Jerald ‘s passing, He was such a good man and friend to everyone he met. He is with Jesus now, probably trying to get Him to wear a Mountaineer shirt! Love,your friend Art Kerns

Prayers for you and your family

Dear Whipkey Family, I want to express my condolences on the passing of Jerald.
It is never easy when we lose a dear loved one. Many people have found hope
and comfort from the promise made in Revelation 21:3,4 where it states that
God will bring an end to sickness and death in his own due time. Never again
will we mourn the passing of a loved one. I hope this wonderful promise will
be a source of hope and comfort for you.

Dear Pam, I was so very sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing…I know what you are going through, Al passed away 6 years ago. When I heard about his passing, I got to thinking about the time we all went on vacation together, for your honeymoon ..I still have the carving on my livingroom wall that you and Jerry had made for us….We thought a lot of Jerry when he worked for us, and was happy for him when he finally branched out on his own………..My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family…….
