    Hey Jerry Dale, Have never forgotten about you brother...I went to Vietnam in Army as a homage to you. Have visited you at the WALL in D.C. Will always remember you as a good looking young man with a good heart and a wild side that drew we young men to you. Was angry when heard of loss of you yet after being there I understand better even if will never accept it. We all gave some yet some gave all. Rest in Peace soldier.

  • Remembering my cousin Jerry

    Posted on 1/9/15 - by Donna L. Taylor
    Jerry was my cousin on my mother's side of the family tree. He and I were both born in 1949. My memories of him are so clear, but my most vivid memory is of attending his funeral. Jerry is interred at Gravel Hill Cemetery, which is located next to the Gravel Hill Missionary Baptist Church on South Highway 9, Saline County, Arkansas, near my mother's grave and several other family members. Jerry is never far from my mind.
