I am so very sorry for Jerry's passing. I know his death leaves a big open hole in Ayres family circle and in their hearts. He leaves a wonderful family as a legacy to his spirit. Prayers and love to Sherry, "Little Jerry" and all the Ayres family.

My sincere condolences to the Ayres family. May the God of comfort help you during this difficult time. Soon our Heavenly Father will bring an end to pain, suffering, sickness and death. ( Revelation 21:3-5 )

My condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. I too have lost loved one in death and look forward to the time when the Bible's promises will come true. At Revelation 21:3,4-God promises that soon death and sorrow will be no more. If you would like to know more on what the bible really teaches please contact your local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.
