Jerry was a wonderful man and I'm so thankful I had the pleasure of knowing him. I knew Jerry my entire life as his family (Shorter family) was like family to the Parsley Family always. My grandfather loved Jerry as his own son and would always talk highly of Jerry. My grandma as well thought of Jerry as a son as well. I will always hear Jerry's laugh as he had a laugh like no other. I will forever cherish the memories of Jerry and his memory will live on in my heart. I send my condolences to Loy, Kara, Matt, and the entire Shorter family. I'm sorry I will not be able to attend the memorial service as I'm in Maryland but I will definitely be thinking of you all. Love always, Cookie Parsley
