Our deepest sympathy to the Lebo family in the home going of Jerry Lebo what a blessing he was to our family
all of these years. What a joy to have known him and his former wife Wanda. They're testimony for the Lord was
indeed evident, they both witnessed to so many people around them. What a joy to know that he's with his Lord, and my
father who passed away recently. May the Lord be with you all, and give you the comfort at this time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Jerry was an excellent
role model for our boys. He was a true man of God who had a love for winning souls. We were privileged to know him and worship
with him many years. We know he is rejoicing in heaven today.

loved spending time with your father and I know I look forward to seeing him in heaven as I tear up, and wish I'd have
spent more time with him before he went home. I love your Father and I Love all of you. Good Bless You.
The funeral service today was
a beautiful tribute to Jerry by his sons and others who spoke of Jerry's love for Christ. He was a Godly man who led
many to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. My deepest sympathy to the family.
