... (Translation from Spanish provided by Dr. Enrique Aguilar. "Thank you!") Message: Greetings! I would love to write you in English, but I can hardly write in my own language. I'm writing to beg you to write a candle for the elevation of your son's soul, and in that same flame will go my prayers of the peace of his spirit and that of all the men, women and children who died in the attack on 09-11. United with you I will pray for peace in the World and that women like you will always give encouragement and wisdom to us whose children are alive. You taught me to tell my son: "I love you today, tomorrow and double sundays." That is my blessing, and if it helps, a greeting from this friend who has cried when reading every letter that you and your son's friends have written in these pages. I say goodbye in unison with your daily prayers. Lourdes Gómez

... Dear Ms. Jeffries, I ran across a link Jerry's memorial site while surfing down memory lane at I am taking this opportunity to let you know how beautiful and inspirational I found the site. Having lost a close family member myself, I can truly appreciate such a memorial. Although Jerry and I weren't exactly close friends, I looked up to him and thought of him as someone I could trust. It is great to see that so many people visit the site and that it has won so many awards. I wish the best for you and your family and congratulate you once again on a truly awe inspiring memorial to one of the most memorable people I've had the pleasure of knowing. Sincerely, David Perry

... This website is just beautiful, I can't think of a better way to immortalize someone that you love. I cried as I looked through this site and browsed, this is truly a work of love. I didn't know Jerry very well, or very long, but he was a very good person, and young, and he still had a whole life ahead of him. It was sad for him to be taken so soon, but everything happens for a reason. Take care and God Bless.

... When I think of Jerry I always smile because he always had one to give. I often think of him and the fun times we had during our school years, all 12 of them. Jerry always knew how to make people laugh, never a dull moment. I knew Jerry since first grade. I can't even begin to tell all of the fun we had, especially during high school. He was a great person and he is sadly missed by all who knew him. It was so hard to not see him at our high school reunion. I miss you Jer. I'll never forget you! ....... Beth (Fauber) Nickoson

They make the memories in my head so strong and vibrant. I always check the site to see if you have added anything new and I love everything that you have done. It is so beautiful. The music and the sayings... Marilyn, no one could have done a better job for the remembrance of Jerry than yourself. Take care..... Kimberly A. Spears

Jim, Randy, and Marilyn... I thought this was beautiful. I have been to the web site numerous times. I know it took a lot of time, but Jerry was worth it. I didn't get to see him often, but when I did it was memorable. I remember when we were little coming to your house... playing outside... Marilyn popping her famous popcorn... and just having fun. Those were the good old days. These things will always be in my memories along with Jerry. Thanks a lot for taking the time to do this........ Love and Prayers, Shelly

...Marilyn, I just finished reading all the pages and was completely overwhelmed. I didn't know Jerry, but I can see he was definitely one of God's children, and you certainly did a good job raising him. Kay called me and gave me the address yesterday and I spent time reading before church, then finished it this morning. I was simply amazed at the web site. I also called someone to tell him about the address...I heard they were friends. My prayers are with you and your family....... Love, Mary Jane

Randy and Jimmy....I think this site is very special and it is a good way to show everyone just how special your brother was.

Marilyn, I just this instant finished reading Jerry's Memory Book. What a wonderful, wonderful tribute to your son. One thing I do know about your son is that he loved and respected his Mother without question. I will certainly cherish all the memories that he and Johnny created together, as children and as adults. You just cannot imagine how often I think of Jerry... he was just like my own son. Thanks for sharing this with everyone. Love, Judy
