Dear Rita and Family, I never got to formally do this until today (mom and dad will follow suit I'm sure), but I wanted to leave you all a note of love and condolence for Jerry Willard. Seems like only yesterday I was over to the house at Haymarket with my grandparents to see you guys. Hug your necks and tell you hello. I always remember those days going with Mermaw and Papaw to see family and friends with the biggest smiles upon my face. It was always especially fun in the summertime when Jerry would have his camera equipment out and rolling or working on a family video or adding to the family photo album. Telling stories. Laughing and telling jokes. Or just playing his guitar and singing a song or two. Dear days. Dear memories. Love you dearly Rita. Please give my love and best to the Family. I know that these last few years have been especially tough with Great Aunt Dorothy's passing, Jerry's and now Jimmy Ray's. Hug Carol Jean's neck good and tight for us and circle those wagons and strengthen family bonds. As my dear old grandmother used to say, "if you ain't got family then what have you got?" God bless!

Rita and family, We have lost a brother and there are few of us left. J-2 and I had a great time working the Intel game. He was a very smart and ingenious and I was truly amazed at some of the things he pulled off before he came to our overseas office. His personal account of his historic trip and action in the Gulf of Tonkin incident (which he revealed at our reunion) was truly amazing. I'm sorry he never got to give his personal account and have the History Channel make the story public. Rita, Cheryl and I send our love and support to you and your family.

One of last memories of Jerry was a wedding I attended, Jerry and Rita opened their house to me. Being from New Mexico Jerry proceeded to harass me about my immigration status! As kids we got together for the holidays and Jerry was always looking really spiffy at his arrival and after we got together in a matter of minutes we resembled the little rascals looking disheveled and mischievous. We would frequent a neighborhood gas station on foot, Sonoco, in Trenton, around the corner from mom and pop's house where we proceeded to steal coke in a bottle, the goal was return the bottle for the deposit! Good times, Jerry you will be missed!

Thank you Jerry for your service to our country. Your Uncle Tony spoke very highly of you, even though we never met you he frequently talked about all your great acheivements which was super inspiring to us. Best to your family from all of us here in NM. Teri, Rob, Ryan and Adam Helmick (Tony's daughter and grandkids)
