    This is Lisa, I want everybody to wear their Gator or Jaguar attire or any other football attire to the funeral and blue jeans. Ozzie was not a suit and tie kind of a guy!

    My memories of Kerry go back to my grade school years and on. He lived down the street from my family and was very protective of my sister and I. As I grew older and became crazy about boys Kerry would warm me about the lines that boys would use on girls. My prayers for his wife, children, grandchildren and all who loved him. A good man gone too soon. God Speed Kerry!
