    My brother John and I have fond memories of Uncle Jerry. As kids, it was always such a treat when Christmas came around and Uncle Jerry came to visit. He was the young, fun, police officer, uncle from Tennessee. We he was in town, we always had to eat at Burgerville, at least once 🙂 Our first trip on an airplane was to visit Uncle Jerry in Tennessee. He took us all over, we visited Dollywood, The Hermitage, and The Alabama Space Center. He also came with us on a family trip to Walt Disneyworld after I graduated from nursing school. His southern accent and laugh is what I will remember most.
