    Jerry, you were a great friend since the 1960’s. We roomed together, traveled together, partied together, and our children grew up together. You will be missed more than words can express. You cannot be replaced, and your passing leaves a void in our lives that cannot be filled. Your smile and engaging humor will be with us always. There is a special place in heaven waiting for you.

    Dear Gene and Family, I went to Madison High School with Jerry and later worked several years with him at the Post Office. For a couple of years we taught new supervisors together and I learned as much from Jerry as did our students. Anytime I needed help with something I could always call him, he will be missed. My prayers are with you and your family.

    To the Lomax family,

    I empathize with you at this time of great loss. It is an honor to have served with Jerry in Vietnam and to have known him in recent years. He will remain in our hearts and minds for the rest of our time in this life.

    Let go and let God take the pain from you.

    I knew Jerry only slightly. He is a Brother in Arms. A comrade in beliefs. We shared the same unit in Nam. Jerry will not be forgotten. He now joins a selected few of those still on patrol. Carry ON Marine, You are in my area all day every day. Semper FI: Turk
