  1. My deep sympathies to the Leforte families. Jerry and I were in the same grade at Bayview school in the Turtle Mountains. Our parents played old-time music and the families spent many days playing music on fiddles, guitars and pianos….Wonderful memories. May you be filled with precious memories and may the help ease the sadness you feel. Sincerely, Shirley Brown (Stovin)

  7. Elaine and family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you soldier on without our beloved Jerry. He was one of a kind and we are so privileged that he and Elaine “fell” into our life by chance. We will never forget that awesome laugh and sense of humor, even when we were in the middle of a kerfuffle. He was honorable and our business was based on a handshake. Men like him are rare. He always thought of others and had more knowledge and common sense than anyone we’ve ever met. We’ll miss you buddy.
