To the family of Jerry Donlin: My deepest sympathy to the Jerry’s family. We were the best of friends growing up, through high school, went into the Army together, always talked to him when visiting Montrose, and this past summer, got to spent time with Jerry and Elaine, It was great but not long enough. We had the same interest through out life. Yesterday driving by a church here in Alabama the sign read, “When gone what we have is memories”. How true a statement. You will surly be missed.
