There are no perfect words to say when your father husband and grand father passes away. Jerry was a kind and compassionate man. It was an honor to know him and it was my honor to offer praises up at his funeral. The Lord has prepared many mansions in heaven for us, and his is surrounded with flowers and birds! Jerry taught me some things about the mechanics and gardening, but more than that he taught me the importance of family friends and the love of the Lord.I pray of of the family finds the peace that passeth all understanding. God bless the Beans and all their children and family.
