Jerry had the most infectious laugh! I can remember walking into the cafe with a neighbor lady for morning coffee and smelling Jerry's lunch specials cooking away- ALWAYS made me so hungry! I've often wondered how many burgers she's flipped and baskets of fries she's dropped in her lifetime. Connie, Debbi and Terry, you have my condolences. Rita Northup, Bussey IA

My mother, Rita Tippie Posey, always thought a lot of Jerry. Mom would always visit Jerry when she came home from Texas. My sympathy...cherish the memories! I do. Sandy Bivens, Milan, IL
