I hate having to resort to a public venue to try and get the truth to those that are still listening to my brother on U Tube, Facebook and his own Web Page, as he slanders his family and continues to lust for public pity and attention. My goodness Jerry, what in the world are you so afraid of? Your need for control is frightening. You have become a Master Manipulator.. Mom, Dad, Scotty, Diane, Tommy or myself have never done anything except help you. You know as well as I do that no one in your family ever said anything untrue, hurtful or demeaning about you.
When people are guilty, afraid or go to the lengths you have gone to, to defend themselves, it usually means they have done something to be guilty, afraid or defensive about.
Jerry you are brilliantly talented, you are financially comfortable, you work at a profession you love. What has happened in the past 2 years that has so drastically changed you? Why would you suddenly lose your memory regarding your family? Your children? Your grandchildren...
Why would you cut yourself off from everyone that knows you? Your old friends, your old business associates, the church family you so coveted.??? Your students and those that purchase supplies from you don't know you.. They only know what you show them... That in and of it's self is fine, but why do you feel the need to act like you have been thrown out with the bath water? Your greed is what kindled this, your ego keeps the fire going. All of these post from "questionable" fans about being told you were "Dead" "Sick" "No longer painting" Geeze Jerry! You may be a fabulous artist but your creativity stops there dear.
Only a moron would say such a thing and only a bigger moron would believe it.. Think about it.. Could you not come up with something more believable than that?? Do you tell your followers that your Mother was the primary receptionist, taking nearly all phone calls and orders for you?
Do you tell them that your Brother, Sister in Law and Dad worked tirelessly for you so you could travel and paint? Do you tell them that not only did they keep your business above water but they took care of your family as well. Yet....You contend that they told callers your were DEAD, SICK, NO LONGER PAINTING???? You want people to think your Brother is a fraud? You want people to think he has tried to STREAL BUSINESS from you.. Court records are public Jerry. He would have never hurt a hair on your head and you know it. Shame on you.
Loyal followers of Jerry Yarnell: Jerry is as good as it gets as an artist.......But, our family is at a loss as to what has happened to the sweet boy, beloved son, trusted brother and good Christian man that we knew. He has dishonored his Father and Mother and Brother. His greed and lust have no boundaries. We continue to pray for Jerry.
I know Jerry will read this, he won't speak to any of us on the phone, see us personally, allow us on his Facebook, so I continue to appeal to him in this manner. My constant prayer is that he makes amends and heals our Mother and Fathers heart before it is too late.
