Dear Nancy and Family,

We are so very sorry for your loss.  We will definitely miss Jerry coming into E L Edwards Realty and stopping by our desks to tell us a joke or share a tidbit of knowledge he had.  He so enjoyed those retirement years and you could tell he was living life to the fullest and enjoying every minute of it.  Your are in our thoughts and prayers.  The E L Edwards Staff.
