    That is so sad, I really liked him. I thought he was who made the Smokey movies what they were. I also liked him in Convoy. RIP Jerry.

    I really like him, too. I told my hubby that he'd passed, and he's like "Jerry who?" [email protected] Yankee. (He's mine, though! [​IMG])

    What a wonderful person he was! I loved his song "The Bird" and he had much more character than his co-star Burt Reynolds,, without Snowman the Bandit would have been nothing.

    I ran into him in an airport about 25 years ago. All I can think of is "When You're Hot, You're Hot...."
