Jerry Case, an 88 year old paleontologist, moved to Jackson nearly two years ago with the intent of volunteering his scientific knowledge and specimens to the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. His specialty is shark teeth. Upon arrival, he was diagnosed with cancer, changing his plans. As he pursues treatment, he has enjoyed his backyard deck which was in need of repairs. His neighbors on Winchester Street got together to help him. They cut the grass and trimmed shrubs plus repaired his deck. Then furniture was donated for it. While the work was going on, children, ages from four to six, served coffee and donuts to the volunteers. Helping their neighbor were (from left, back) Vic and Benton Gray-Lewis, Dan Ritchie, George Phillips, John Rodgers, Bret and Beck Kenyon, Marie Theisen, Shelley Gray-lewis, Olivia Kenyon, Will and Clovis Berlin, Robert, Wesley, Hannah Riker, Will Balentine; and (front) Gerry Gray-Lewis, Lauren Ritchie, Joy Rushing, Jerry Case, Michael Gray-Lewis, Nate Theisen, Mollie Gray-Lewis, Clare and Silas Berlin.
