Jere, you were super. You dragged me to stuff including your beloved bell choir. I was privileged to get to eat supper with you for two months. And it was so special to be included in your Birthday party and tell you I loved you and thank you for everything you did for me. Blessings on your family of whom you were very proud. I will miss you so very much. Love, Shelley
