Memories Timeline


  1. Brother Glass was a kind and generous person. At the church he always had a smile and a friendly hand shake. He took a personal interest in everyone that he talked to. The last time I talked with him at the church, he wanted to know if I had started building that new house. He had heard that I wanted to get a new house built. We will miss him at Livingway. He was a major part of our church family. My prayers are with all of you who were so close to him.

  2. Dear fellow family, I am so sorry, I did not hear of Jerry's passing until this afternoon so was not able to make visitation tonight. But, will do my best to make the funeral tomorrow. I was not aware he was even ill. Had only talked to him once since daddy's funeral first week of Feb. I love Jerry so very much, he was so special(trying at times, but special-ya'll all know what I mean and say with a great deal of love). He will never be forgotten and always loved. Who now will step up and spin yarns like him. Oops, forgot, we have many in the family that are capable. love you all and hope to see ya'll tomorrow.Ronny

  3. Jerry was a very warm, thoughtful and kind man. We loved to drop by for visits and when he would greet us with, Come on in, Children, we felt so much love and warmth. We will miss him so much. Cousins from DeRidder
