Jerry was one of a kind. Devoting himself to my father which will never be forgotten. Also devoting himself to me during the death of my father. He was a pleasure to work with and took great care of my family. I love all the Nabonsal family and I dearly hope they realize what a guy he was. I couldn’t express myself enough in how he treated me when my father passed. He did everything and anything to make me feel comfortable...... no words can be expressed for what he has done for my immediate family. I will miss him greatly.....Live you Jer!

My prayers and blessings to the entire Nabonsal family. While I did not know Mr. Nabonsal personally, I know he must’ve been pretty spectacular to have raised an amazing daughter like Jill. Fondly, Sandy
