Jerry was everyone's friend.  I loved dancing with him.  I remember going out with him to eat to a resturant or just about any public place and the first thing he would do is look for "exits".  Guess that was the architect in him.  He will be missed.

For over 27 years, my wife Sherry has been my best friend.

Having said that, if my marriage relationship is set aside for the moment, and I just think about friends where friendship of being lifelong buddies is the context, then Jerry would be the best friend I ever had.

Everyone understands what you mean when you say that your wife or husband is the love of your life...well, borrowing that vernacular and applying it to the context of lifelong friends, then Jerry was the friend of my life...blessed that he was a most wonderful friend and blessed that he called me his friend.

I wish for everone to have a friend like I had in Jerry.
