This upcoming reunion brings back memories of Jerry.  We had a lot of good times and I saw Jerry a few times in the 60's.  He died way too soon.

I can picture his two door Ford and parking behind the barber shop.  What a voyage my time at MSU/PMA was.

What a shock to learn of Jerry's passing at such a young age! So many memories...Jerry had a unique sense of pitch, which we exploited a number of times...Jerry would come into the dorm after a gig, and fall thoroughly asleep. The bit was, to sneak over to the piano, and play I IV V7, in ANY KEY... then wait...Jerry would climb out of bed, march to the piano, and hit ONE CHORD, the TONIC! Then, muttering, he would fall back into bed and go back to sleep... Jerry played at my wedding reception...Phil Hilstrom told me Jerry was his Best Man at his wedding...I miss Jerry a lot...He will always be in our memories as he "walks the wind..." Chuck Vreeland
