Jerry was always happy and just the nicest person. It was so nice to reconnect with him and his new wife Dorothy at our family reunion a few years ago - they were both very happy and now they can be together again....RIP, Jerry

I had lots of fun with Jerry running his trapline and throwing a baseball in his yard in Cherryvale. In later years, we would talk at Osgood family reunions and remember the old days.
