Jerry's death hit me really hard, I have thought about him everyday for the past 35 years. It was one sided but he was the love of my life. Rest in Peace Jerry.

Jerry was most proud of his Native American Heritage and his love of horses. he was able to purchase the number one Arabian Stallion in the world "Sams Count", he also had the number two filly of 1987 which was his very first race horse D.T.J. Luvatraz who one the Firecracker for Fillies July 4th. He never lost his hair nor his desire to do more. During his last months during a long bout with colon cancer he was still trying to plan a trip abroad. His true desire was to see his children successful and leave them the memories of his heritage. Rest in Peace, Jerry and hopefully you may continue to look over your children.
