Mr. Jerry, thank you for deciding to bring Linda and yourself to Scott, Louisiana. You made all of us laugh and taught us about Lutefisk. The best thing is when you flew your new drone inside the camper and chopped up Mrs. Linda's plant! My memories of you will always be with a happy heart. You will be missed.
