Lynn, we are terribly sad that we can’t make it to the funeral. You know I desperately want to be there. Covid has hit our family and we wouldn’t dare put others at risk. You and Jerry have been great friends to Wayne and me for many years! We have had so many amazing memories with you two. I wish I could give you the biggest hug! We both know he is loving on Weezer and Lucky in heaven! Because we share the love for animals we have donated to the Humane Society in Jerry, Weezer and Lucky’s honor! Xoxo!
