I went to school with both deanna and jerry and knew he had been sick. I am so sorry for her lost i know it has to be rough and especailly on the kids, my heart goes out to them and they will be in my prayers.
I am so sad to hear about Jerry, I went to school with him ,, he also is was married to my cousin. Jerry was always a friend to my family.He fought along time and now he can rest.Our heart goes out to Dee, we know you have seen more than your share of grief in you life, more than a person should have at your age. but still you seem to find a way to go on. If anything we can do let us know.

I too would like to know the arrangements. I just got off the phone with my and jerry's uncle and he didn't know the arrangments as of yet. Jerry is my cousin and I was saddened to find out he had lost the fight...he sure did fight a long hard battle with all his health problems. If anyone tells Deanna about this site, please let her know that Jerry's cousin Diana (me) will be sure to hold her and the children in my prayers as well as his brothers.

This is tough. Deanna, I will have mom call and get your number and I will call you.
I am so sorry to hear this, Jerry knows he was and always will be one of my best friends.
To all Jerry's brothers (I was the one who recruited him to come play football at Napier and was also the one who pitched him the ball when #40 ran those 80 yard touchdowns, Brian's brother) and the Neace family, my deepest sympathies. If you personally knew Jerry then you knew how tough he was and how hard of a fighter he was. If you truly knew him then you should look in the mirror and start feeling a bit fragile right now because as a human he was as good as it gets.
As I was walking it happens that I did see, a Levi's pocket lying on the ground. Lying in misery.It sat there all alone sort of like a loner thinking of the better days when it was with it's owner.To all the places they walked and the sites they'd see.To sexy women they would talk.That is how it used to be. As I walked I could hear it curse the ripper "Why me! Why not the beltloop or the zipper!
HEY GUYS HERE ARE THE ARRANGEMENTS YOU ALL WANTED:
VISITATION TUESDAY NIGHT AFTER 6 P.M. AT THE LOWER SECOND CREEK CHURCH. BURIAL WEDNESDAY AT 10 A.M. THIS IS THE CHURCH THAT IS RIGHT BESIDE HIGHWAY 15 ON THE LEFT. MERRILL DAVID COLLINS OFFICIATING. HOPE ALL OF YOU CAN MAKE IT.IF NOT PLEASE REMEMBER THEM IN YOU PRAYERS. THEY NEED IT RIGHT NOW.
FRED YOU TOOK THE WORDS OUT OF MY MOUTH...HE WAS AS GOOD AS IT GETS...HE WOULD GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK IF HE KNEW YOU NEEDED IT...AND I KNOW THAT DEE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
so sorry to hear about jerry , him and deanna and the girls use to live near my husband and i several years ago . great people . deanna if there is anything i can do let me know. im elberts wife , that died 2 years ago . my prayers are with you . i must say you have a rough road ahead . but trust in god he will get you thru it . and just think jerry isnt suffering anymore . he is resting now .
I just want to say that my heart goes out to Deanna and the girls and to all the Family. I growed up around all of them and went to School wtih Deanna and Jerry.Me and Jackie (Jerrys Neace) are best friends..Me and Marvin seen Jerry awhile back and he looked so bad but of course he was out driving around and fighting his illness with everything in him..He was always a fighter and would help anyone with anything..He loved Deanna and them girls with all his heart..THey were his life..She sure stuck with him and took good care of him..Her and them girls..I know they are gonna miss him and so is everyone else and he did give his illness a good fight..But at least he isnt suffering anymore and I know in my heart that he will be watching over Deanna and the girls and the rest of his family and friends..But to Jackie if you need me you know were I am ok..And all the family are in my thoughts..
