I'm lucky to know Jerry

My wonderful friend Jerry and some of his coworkers
With all the terrible news in the world, it's nice to hear about a person with an absolute pure and kind heart!  That is my friend Jerry!

Jerry was so excited to open his b-day gifts!
 I met Jerry years ago at our local Goodwill.  He was working there, and the first time he came up to me and said hello, I was kind of "taken a-back".  He was so friendly, and a that time, I thought, a bit strange.  It did not take me long to realize he was the "real deal"!

The girl on the left shares the same b-day as me!
 Everyone that came into the Goodwill store was greeted by Jerry, and everyone loved him!  A few years ago, he was transferred to a rehabilitation center where they teach them to put together packets for hospitals (he showed me all of that).

I visit as often as I can, and truly, every single person there is so friendly and they can't wait to shake me hand, or hug me, and introduce themselves to me!

Jerry is a "special needs" person.  That is just a silly thing to call him.  I don't think of him that way at all.  He is the sweetest and most kind person in the world, and I'm so lucky that he's a part of my life!

He emailed me a few days ago to see if I could visit him today, for his birthday.  I've been bringing him gifts every year on his birthday, even when he was at Goodwill.  He loves Pokemon, dogs (actually he loves all animals) and video games.

When he opens his gifts, he is shaking so hard with excitement, that I have to tell him to try to relax.  

He showed me the goldfish that have at the center, and he named all of them.

Just talking about him brings me joy.  I love Jerry-I love his heart.  Pure.

Enjoy your day!
