Dear Anneke, Monica, Tanya, Stephen and Family,
Please accept our heartfelt condolences in the passing of Jerry. I will always remember seeing Jerry in McDonald's with his cronies and each time he would call me over to chat and see how life was treating me. He was friendly and always had a smile. We will miss him.
God bless and may the peace of Christ be with you all, Sandy and Alvin Giles

Our sincere condolences to you Anneke, Monica and Tanya. Jerry was such a good friend to dad, he often shared stories of their days working together on the farm. A friendship that continued long after their working days were done. May your own memories of happier days be a comfort to you now.
