Jerry was my father in law, and the best I could have hoped for. I am beyond proud to be a Covert for 21+ years!! Jerry and Rose are the most giving, kind hearted people I have ever known. I am thankful to be one of their own. Jerry and I joked with each other over the years and have only had one serious conversation and that was after Steve was taken from us....I thought Jerry was crazy for looking toward the future and made one request, which I think I obliged :-) You lived a porposful life and led by example. I hope that I and your grandchildren will make you proud. Until we meet again.....I love you.
