Totally overcome with grief, I drew this picture of Jerry the day after he passed away. I'm not a very good artist but I am proud of this little sketch. I put my love for him into it and I will always remember those extremely sad days after his passing. Where I was standing the moment I heard the news, how depressed we all became as a family.
