    Michelle, I have always loved being with your family. Including your Dad who was a wonderful neighbor in Whitman , and then as a postal worker in Brockton. I frequently saw him there as I took care of mail for my job in Brockton. Always a smile and always a friend. Loving energy for you and your family. Take care. If only the world were full of people like your family.

    My deepest sympathy to the entire Sheridan and Smith family. Jerry was a compassionate person who loved to talk for hours. He gave from the heart and his largest smile on his face will be missed by all. Rest in peace. Betty (Luiz) Edwards

    Jerry and I were in school together and played little league together along with his older brother Bruce, I bumped into Jerry again at the US Navy Boot Camp in Great Lakes, IL. In 1967 🇺🇸. Great memories. Thoughts and prayers to the entire Smith family. 🙏 (David) Duff O'Connor
