"What can we say…..
What can we say about Jerry Joe Lucky? What can we say about a man that has been so many things to so many people, a friend, a therapist, a partner in crime (just joking or am I, you know who you are), but to me and my sister Sherri, he was our protector,our teacher of life, sometimes even our worst enemy, but most importantly, he was the man that loved us unconditionally. Jerry was our daddy and we learned a lot of important lessons from him over the years, like say what you mean and mean what you say, respect others, hard work does pay off and always try to be kind to others. He also taught us silly life lessons as well, like glow sticks are great flashlights and work great for waking up your mother early on Christmas morning and Vicks vapor rub is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Our Daddy never met a stranger which is why we used to call him the mayor, because that man would talk to anyone that would listen. My sister and I would cringe at times when we went anywhere with Daddy because a 30 minute trip would always turn into hours of standing around. He knew a lot of people and would talk about anything and everything and laughter was always present. What can we say about a man that would stay up all night playing video games with us after working all day. Daddy was a bigger kid than us at times, OK mostly all the time, but it was part of his charm. He gave his sarcastic sense of humor to Sherri, me and his grandkids, Cole and Brogan, which has come in handy more than a few times. What can we say about a man that cut my steak well into my adult life because he was nervous I would cut myself and yes I would occasionally. He would mash Catfish up for Sherri because he was scared she would get choked on a small bone and even now Sherri still does that when she eats fish today. What can I say about a man that would do anything for anyone, even a complete stranger? What can I say about a man that would not miss an opportunity to say I love you, because daddy would tell us you never know when you will get another chance. What can we say? …we can say thank you for being a wonderful daddy, a great grandfather to our kids, a loving son to Evelyn, a caring brother to James, Peggy, Charles, Arnita and Crin. A loving husband to Charlotte, a wonderful uncle to all his nephews and nieces and loyal friend to so many. We can say you will be truly missed, we will never forget you, and we will always love you mostest. Daddy, you will forever be a tattoo on our hearts. Thank you for all the memories and we promise to take the lessons that you gifted us with and continue to make you proud.
On behalf of me and my sister, Sherri, I would like to thank Archie, Bama, Hardy, Beverly, Linda Lou, and Mike for the many years of friendship you have given our dad and you have graciously given to us. To Crin, Arnita, Bama and Archie, thank you does not start to cover the gratitude that Sherri and I have for y'all helping us with daddy. To Danny ( Sherri’s husband) thank you for accepting daddy into your home and helping to take care of him and showing him love and kindness. To Everyone, just in case we don’t get another chance, we love you all and thank you daddy for THAT life lesson.
Out of respect for our Daddy and his wishes, there will not be a service at this time."
