Letter: Jerry leaves an empty place in my heart

Jerry, my neighbor, friend and a good conversationlist leaves an empty place in my heart. He made bird feeders and we were the recipients of several and have had pleasure in his product and the enjoyment of birds coming around. He would make maybe a little fun of me as I touched the bulkhead rock in front of his house on my regular beach walk signaling my turn around point. He would come out of his house and invite me in for a little conversation. For the last year he didn’t come out and I would go up to his house and he would invite me in and we were comfortable together talking about the locals and world events. He enjoyed watching the boat traffic go by his house and one time he took a picture of my wife and I at sunset in our canoe with my resting on my paddle as my wife in the bow was working diligently.It must have been a good picture as it appeared on the front page of his paper. What a nice bit of humor on his part.

I will remember Jerry and his wonderful part in my life.
