Bev and family, I'm very sorry about Jerrys death. I know Butch and Jerry are probably up there bowling or fishing and having a great time together. I remember when all of us would go to the Stump for the yearly bowling supper. We had some good times together. You and your family have my deepest sympathy.

Jerry will be missed by many people, but I will always remember him as one who cared deeply about his friends and family. I'm sure the fish will feel a little safer now, but knwoing Jerry he's probably trying to rig up some type of line from Heaven snd snag the big one. We shared some great times with Jerry and will never forget some of the times we had in good old Milwaukee. Our deepest sympathy to the Johnson Family as you mourn your loss.

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept my condolences, Jerry will not be forgotten. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
