Thank you Pastor Ed for those sweet honest words about Jerry. Jerry Vick was also a good friend to me when we joined TLC many years ago. I too have an insane and unrewarding affection for the game of golf. It took Jerry about two minutes to work that out of me. Like you, he offered to help me with my game. Although I did not have women's clubs (that's a story I've heard from many TLC congregants) he invited me to his house to show me his shop and memorabilia. I was struck initially by his pleasant cheerful warmhearted demeanor and confidence to open up to people with his own special tenderhearted joy and humor. In doing just that he lit up the room with his genuine gentle demonstration of Gods love.
Although I haven't seen Jerry now for several years, now that I know he is gone, my world is suddenly poorer for his loss yet: my life has been enriched in many ways just knowing he was in it.
