A great childhood friend when I was coming up. Our grandfathers farmed watermelons together as we were coming up and as a result, I spent a considerable amount of time around him and his brother Sammy,
. Like my family and many others in our community, the Colson's were raised up working hard in the fields. We were all poor, we just didn't know it. RIP Jerry and I hope God comforts your family and friends during their time of sorrow.
