From another former Peltonite, a fond farewell is bid to our good friend, Jerry.  Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Jerry's company during the many years since our friendship was "forged" at Pelton Casteel.  His sense of humor, his ability to laugh at all the stupidity in the world, and a seemingly permanent, mischievous look in his eye endeared him to us both. Although we cannot attend the service, we will hold a good thought that he is now enjoying the reward for a life well-lived.
