Bert Jerman died at his home Monday morning after less than two weeks illness with typhoid fever. His death was sudden and unexpected as he was not thought to be seriously ill. But it is only another reminder of the uncertainty of life. He will be greatly missed in the home circle and by his young associates and our hearts go out in sympathy to the bereaved father and sister so soon called to again mourn the loss of a dear one.
