Sandra, You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God provide you peace, strength, and comfort. I have always thought fondly of Jerry. I remember getting to know him many years ago waiting on him when I worked at the River Ridge office when he was working for the state. He was a lot of fun and liked to cut up and give me a hard time. Please know you are loved by many people at FCB and know you have lots praying for you. Let me know if I can do anything. Sending love and prayers, Diane Edwards

Dearest Sandra, It saddened me greatly to learn of Jerry's passing.
He was a man of true faith and devotion to our Lord and Savior. How well I remember our days at Malvern Hills Baptist Church when Neal Swann was Pastor.Jerry loved leading the Sunday mornings Choir in worship by singing. He will be greatly missed by those that knew him best and by all the souls that he touched through the years including mine. May God keep you in his arms during the coming weeks and months.You have my most sincere condolences.

Sandra,

My heart breaks for you in the loss of the love of your life and my heart breaks for the loss of �A Rock� in our Christian Faith. He had a smile and a word of encouragement for everyone. He gave his testimony just as easily to an old man in overalls, as he did to a crowd that he was standing in front of while singing his heart out for His Lord.

I will be forever grateful for the love he has shown my whole family over the years as a friend and as a true example of being Christ Like.

So many times he sang �What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see!� What a day he is having right now! And I can just hear him telling you that �He will wait on you before he starts eating!" You have one more reason to look forward to that Marriage Supper!

He will be missed by all who knew him but none will miss him more than you!

Our love and prayers are with you,
Linda, Mike & Angie Silvers

Dear Sandra and family... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of Jerry.

Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.

Kevin and I have been blessed since we joined Freedom Baptist Church of Asheville by Jerry Bowers singing ministry and fellowship. Our church family was blessed with many fond memories, while Jerry sang with Kevin's uncle, Roger Clement, in the Carolina Melody Masters. He is now celebrating on the other side of glory with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is our sincere prayer that Jerry's family and friends treasure these memories like we do until we meet again in heaven. With much love, in Jesus Christ Holy name.
