Add My Condolences

Gerri and I had so much fun in our high school days and following years. When I moved away, we kept in touch and we always got together when I came back to visit. She had a deep faith in Jesus and that gives me comfort knowing she is in her new body now that will never hurt. May God bless her son and sister and families.
