My condolences to the Jenkins/Day family. Losing a dear loved one is never easy. I am sorry for your loss and the pain you must feel. Please be assured that God is close to us when we feel low. Psalm 34:18 says, "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those that are crushed in spirit." May you find comfort in God's promise to remove death forever. (Revelation 21:3,4)

I had many memories of Jerry as I called her when I was very young. Her giving me my very first piece of KFC was very special to me. May you be at peace!
