  1. Thoughts and prayers are with Kerry’s family! I was so shocked when I heard that Kerry had passed away. I had just seen him and Luan recently at Shrimpy’s here in Madisonville, talked briefly with them, and all seemed ok. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. May God hold you in the palm of His Almighty Hand and give you the strength and peace that passes all understanding through these difficult days! Hugs!

  3. I just happened upon this when a friend sent me to this site in the loss of their dad. I just looked around and saw that my old friend, Kerry, had passed away. I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.

    I just realized that the funeral was yesterday. I would have liked to come and hear more about Kerry’s life. We were friends in jr. high and high school. I lived in Crockett.

    I pray that you all will be comforted in your great loss. I know you have a great joy in knowing of Kerry’s love for the KING OF KINGS and LORD of LORDS! I know I will see him again.

    Love,
