Jerry will be missed for a lot of good reasons. He was one kind and good neighbor. My son Dylan Paul rode a many trips with him on the sled around his field for several years. He spent more time with Jerry on his pulling trips than he did with me sometimes. Dylan will miss him greatly. Prayers for all his family. Johnny and Dylan Mullins and family
