My heart aches for Lyla, and there isn't words that can express the sorrow I feel. Jerry was always full of life, always had a smile on his face, and could always say some of the funniest things. Lyla and Jerry were always together and enjoyed life to the fullest. Jerry was so much a part of the Cook family and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him and loved him. There will never be another Mr. Jinks. When God made him, he knew there would never be a replacement. Fly high my friend. Love you and can't wait till we are all together again.
