I'm so sorry to learn of the passing of Jerry Hunt. Jerry always had a smile and a kind heart. I met him when we both attended New Creation Church in San Diego, CA. Back in the day, as a new member of "The Brotherhood" (the church's men's group), Jerry was always one to make you feel welcome and that you could count on his friendship. Scripture says that you know a tree by the kind of fruit it produces. While I don't know all of Jerry's family, I do know one of his daughters. Her heart for others and the impact she is making on her community through her occupation says a lot about Jerry and the way he made us feel.
