I was deeply sorry to read about Jere’s passing. Please accept my sincere and deepest sympathy at this difficult time. May your inner strength help you cope with these difficult circumstances. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jere and I were friends as we grew up together at St. John’s Episcopal Church. We sang in the choir and frequently hung out together before his enlisting in the Marines. Our exploits are embedded forever in my mind. May Jere’s soul rest in peace.
