"You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart". I'm glad I knew you Jerry Mulkey. Working with Jerry was like working with your best friend. He always tried to bring a smile or a laugh to anyone that walked through his doors. He had a scale in the store that people could weigh themselves. Jerry would love to sneak up behind them and put his foot on it and would laugh out loud when they realized what he was doing. He could be a prankster. I think of you often. We will meet again.

So sorry for your loss. Jerry was a one of a kind person. He always had a smile on his face and something nice to say about anything you were talking about. He was so uplifting and caring. He will be missed. Love you all.
