This is my uncle JERRY he was (IS) a good man I grew up with him. We had great times and he made us tough and we laughed and cried together. My brother and I worked at a job he loved and would always come to watch us gin cotton until he couldn't make the trip anymore. It was always fun to hear his stories about how much different it was from when he worked at the same place when he was younger. I could tell all kinds of stuff and stories about our relationship all in all he was a great uncle and great man. Thank you UNCLE JERRY BARNES for being the person you were. I LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!
