    That a shock. What a lovely sweet pair. I have known Jerry since 1st grade and we were neighbors till we were 18 years old and then classmates all through the years as well. Rose and Jerry made a perfectly sweet couple and I send my condolences to the whole family. God bless you all at this incredibly sad loss.
