Erica, Corey and girls,
We are so very sorry for the loss of your father, Erica. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
I am sorry for the loss of Jerry. I met him when we were in highschool. I was a friend of Donna. I was so sad when I read of his passing and Donnas. I had no idea. Then found the obituaries of Jerry’s parents too. I remember when Donna’s first born arrived. And holding her. We lost contact through the years. Jacqueline Kregel Ducharme
