Jerry Russell Schwer
Jerry Russell Schwers and I were together for about two years. We had a wonderful time together and created a wonderful little boy named Christopher. Jerry was always a party goer and before I got pregnant I didn't have a problem with that. However his partying caused me to have to live with my parents in Germany while he looked for an apartment. After I left Jerry started using drugs again and he started to give up on his life. He used to use drugs a lot as a teenager and it had already gotten him put in jail for about a year. He fell back into his old habits and started to steal change out of cars and what not. Well, one night he stole a car and the police chased him. Instead of giving up he ran and hid in the woods. He stayed in the woods for so long that he developed hypothermia. He died later on that day. Now I have to tell me son later on in life that his father is dead and why.
