Jerry was such a wonderful person to work with and I learned so much from him in our six years together. He was so much more than a boss, he was a great friend. I will truly cherish the memories. He always listened and gave great advice. I hope he knows the positive impact he had on my life. I am grateful for the time I got to spend with him during his last few weeks. Jerry, you are truly missed.

How does one measure success? the amount of money you have in the bank?... the recognition or awards one gets? ... the important people you have met on your path? I guess it's all too personal as in my mind, success is measured on how many lives you impact; that made of Jerry Peterson a HUGELY succesful person. He left Lakeview Farms a far better place to work from the company he took under his wing six years ago... and for that we are all very, very grateful. I know I am. Jerry, May the angels lead you into paradise and May your soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. And thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
