  • Jerry/Jake, RIP big brother! You will be missed! I can remember all of the fun times together with our family's and when you lived in Toledo,OH. You always had a green thumb for your orange trees/plants. I will never forget fun times with your BF and Race Way Park. And the many road trips in the van(beers in hand) listening to Pink Floyd/classic rock. You were a fun,loving and caring brother. I Love You and thank you for being you! You will always be in my heart, and NEVER forgotten'. Save me a lounge chair and a little foo-foo umbrella where your hanging out right now(BEACH BUM LOL)! Big hugs to you and all of my living family members who are mourning. Especially to my brothers: Danny, and Terry! Love, Your Little(BABY) Sis, Tonya Pelland
