    Mary and Family - I was so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I often saw him while teaching at JM but really got to know him when working summer floor crew. We were oftentimes in the same building. Jerry was a good guy and his smile will be missed by many. May you find some comfort knowing you are in our thoughts and prayers. - John Wheeler and Family

    Being an Oliver myself, I always found solace when I would see Jerry, Mary and the girls at reunions because I knew that I had not just family, but good friends to spend time with. Jerry was always such a kind man and never missed the opportunity to make me and my brother Billy smile and laugh! Mary is always happy to see you and waiting for a hug! The girls have always been so kind to me and my siblings too, they were well raised and it shows. My deepest condolences for the loss of a truly wonderful person. He’s with our Lord now.
