What do you say when the news is bad?

I have to let our friends know that on July 22, Linda and Paul’s son Jerry passed away. He has gone home to be with God.

His wife Viviana, that he loved with all his heart, and his family and friends will hold his memory always in their hearts.

Jerry spent thousands of hours working with the LA Rescue Mission. It was his passion to help rehabilitate the lost and homeless. In lieu of flowers the family would like donations to the Mission in Jerry’s name. We will send another email out with the donation information in a few days when the Scholarship fund is set up.

  4. Linda and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a child is a tremendous loss. My 35 year old son passed away suddenly last year. The heartache does not go away. You just have to believe they are with our Heavenly Father and someday we will all be together again. God’s blessings on Linda’s family.
