"Jerry had a big heart. He worked hard over the years for Builders' Hardware and will always be remembered fondly and that F.S.U. jacket and suspenders were his trademark for many years while taking great care of his customers (his friends) along the way. R.I.P. Jerry. From your friends at Builders' Hardware and Supply Co., Inc."
