Jerry Brannin 9/1/1944 - 8/2/2013
My oldest living friend from the acid flavored 60's! Part of him rests with my moms ashes in the memorial shrine just outside the entrance to Black Bamboo Pavilion. Jerry was a very talented stain glass artist and made windows for the chapels of Norfolk Naval Yard-based ships out of his American Stain Glass Studio in Norfolk. I'm having a stone engraved for him with the inscription, "the OTHER eye!" Because he had a wandering eye and for all the decades we were friends I would always pick the wrong eye to focus on...and that's what he'd say to me!
