    Jerry was my 1st cousin. We were at times very close, he entered the Marines and I chose the Air Force. I was a pall bearer at his funeral. It is a memory I will never forget. Rest well, Jerry.

    Jerry Dunigan is my 3rd cousin and I never knew him. I remember looking through my mother's trunk full of family keepsakes when I was young and finding the newspaper clippings of Jerry's death and burial. This was when Jerry became real for me. I cried when I read of how he died and saw the pictures of the military burial he was given in Fooks Cemetery where all of my father's family are buried. In the clippings, there is a story told about Jerry helping to fix the Mt. Moriah Primitive Baptist Church roof which is just down the road from where he grew up. At some point during that day, he fell off the roof. Miraculously, he wasn't hurt and continued with the job. That was just the kind of person he was. Not long after that--in 1966--Jerry came back to that church for his funeral. I thought of the first time I visited the Wall in 1987 and I think of him still. Jerry made all of us from Possum Trot Kentucky very proud!
