Aunt Jerry was a extraordinary woman. Her talents and her strengths inspired me. I LOVED to be around her with her wonderful smile, her big heart and her sense of humor. She will forever by in my heart.

Sweet Jerry, you will be missed. I remember our Yatzee games and how much fun we had... Wearing silly Hats & laughing, going outside, sitting on the porch. Decorating the Christmas Tree. We all had a lot of fun. Love & Huggs.

Dear Judi….
I am so sorry to read of your mum’s passing. You were a cherished daughter who took such good care of her. Though I only knew her a short time, her favorite words will always put a smile on my face. She was a sweetheart, as is her daughter… you! Sincere condolences,

Your loving daughter, Judi

I will miss all of our conversations about how we would solve the world's problems. I will miss how much you enjoyed your snack time, eating your Pepperidge farm cookies, Kit Kats, peanut butter crackers and Pringles all in one sitting! I will miss hearing you say your favorite word "copacetic"! I will miss us scaring each other in the hallway. But most of all I will miss hearing you tell me that you loved me more.
