I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Jerry, Tom, and Tonya. So much grief in such a short time. My family lived in the same neighborhood when we were all kids, and my sister and I played with Tonya often. As a matter of fact, she broke her arm on the swing in our backyard. Jerry was always kind to us and teased and made us laugh. Many prayers for God's comfort for your family!
