  1. I enjoyed working with Jerry many years ago and had a nice visit with him last October at my dad’s visitation. I knew Jerry and Janice from my time at the Pizza Inn. I wish the family the surroundings of love during this time. My deepest condolences for you all. Debra Johnson Bundren

  2. Uncle “Butch” will be missed by many more than you even know. I pray God’s comfort and peace for all the family.

  3. Janis, My thoughts are with you. I know how much you will miss Jerry. Just wanted to know that I’m thinking of you and your children at this time. Please stay in touch our class and I will love to hear from you. We had fond memories of Jerry (Butch) and what a blessing for us that you both got to come down and meet with the class. My God be with you during this time.

    Love you
    Patricia White

  5. Dear Janis and children,
    My heart goes out to you on Butch’s death. I was so blessed to have been a close neighbor and good friend with Butch as we were growing up. I have many, many fond memories of the times Butch would come to our home to play with my brother Neil and me. We were also classmates, so we had much in common. I loved Butch, and I miss him already. He remained my good friend throughout his life, and he sent many laughs my way via e-mail. I’m glad I could pray with him and encourage him in his illness. I know he would have done the same for me. My consolation now is that Butch is home in Heaven with his Savior, free from pain and at rest. We will see him again. My prayer is that God will comfort you and give you peace and rest. Your memories of Butch will warm your hearts for all the coming days. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Jane Davis

    Remembering You

    Your time on earth seemed all too brief
    because I wanted you in my life forever.
    And although I really miss you,
    in my heart I know that you are at peace.
    Still, countless times throughout the day
    I find myself remembering you.
    Although I cannot see or hear you,
    I know that you are with me.
    I’ll feel you in the warmth of the summer sun.
    I’ll see you in the brilliance of autumn leaves.
    You’ll be beside me in the peacefulness of a gentle snowfall
    and rejoice with me at the emergence
    of the first flowers of spring.
    I’m thankful for the times we shared
    and the priceless memories too;
    for those memories are a comfort now when I lovingly –
    Remember You.

  7. Dear Tammy, Holli, Clint and family,

    I know that you are now missing your father’s physical presence but be comforted by knowing that he will always be with you in your heart and soul. Jerry was always one of my favorite “guys” from Physical Plant since no matter what the problem was, he approached it with not just great skill but also with humor and a “we are all in this together” attitude. There was no one too high or too low on the TAMU food chain that we could not privately poke a little fun at them and tell each other how much better it would be if we were in charge. Then we would have a laugh and go back to work, knowing that those pipe dreams were never going to happen but feeling better for having expressed them.

    Try not to mourn the time lost but to rejoice in the time you had together.

  8. Clint, Amanda & Tammy,
    We are so sorry about the loss of you Daddy. I know this has to be a difficult time for all of you. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you all and your family. May God provide you with strength and peace. With love, Rick and Shelley (Putz) Bailey
