My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of sorrow. Jersey was an absolute pleasure to work with at church and a great pal to share the balcony with during the Sunday services!! Always friendly, happy and a joy to be around. He certainly loved his family tremendously and showed it everyday. I was blessed to have known him. May God give you the strength to get through the difficult days ahead.
