I took Jerry home many of nights after our basketball games at Ada when I was coaching. If everyone had the Love in their hearts like Jerry Todd this world would be a lot better place. I'm sure he is asking God for a team hat right now. You will be missed my friend.

Jerry was my newspaper man when he and I lived at the Aldridge hotel. He always had a smile on his face. Rest In Peace Jerry.

Jerry and I became good friends during the five years I coached football at Ada High, Jerry was a kind and gentle person and fun to be around. He loved sports and was an avid Ada High fan. I am saddened by his passing. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND.
