Jerry "MoonUnit Beckwith"

At 10:07 a.m. on April 4th, 2006, Jerry was relieved of his suffering. Surrounded by his family, he died peacefully at the Solace hospice facility. Jerry's strength, his humor and his infectious joy touched so many of us. In one of his final e-mails, he said "I'm going to miss my greatest blessing here - my friends. You have all been a blessing to me." You were the blessing Jerry. We'll carry your spirit as we paddle clear creeks, while biking down country roads and we'll "look for rainbows EVERYWHERE".
