What a journey the Pearcy’s and Jerman’s have enjoyed! Our multiple generations of friendship have been a great blessing for our families!
One of the (big) reasons we never left our jobs and home at Amber-Pocasset was because of our friendship. We knew we would never be able to find anyone with the kind of good and Godly influence that you had with our family. We chose you (AJ & June) to be the guardians of Holly, Chad, and Brian if both of us were to die before they grew to adulthood. Ours was a relationship that went beyond DNA.
I hope that I never lose my memory, because if I do, I’ll be losing a vast storehouse of some of my greatest treasures!
To just say “I love you” see
...ms so inadequate to describe my feelings.
I look forward to Jack and I walking around Heaven with our June & AJ someday❣️

Uncle A. J. Rest In Peace and know that you provided me with some of the most amazing childhood memories. As I look back I smile thinking of all the love I received from you and Aunt June. I have countless, amazing memories. You and Aunt June raised four of the best role models a girl could have. Thank you for the memories and thank you for always coming home from work and letting me rifle through your lunch box. Best memories EVER. Aunt June, Robin, April, Tammy and Cindy you have always held a special place in my heart and now I pray that you find peace because I know you have nothing but precious memories. Love you all so very much! Love you to heaven and back Uncle A.J.!
