Will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers during the trying time in your life.

Emerson, I was shocked to hear about Jerri. I'm so so sorry for the gap losing her has left in your life. You two were such a joy when Bill, mom and I celebrated Christmas with you at Sandy's. I only knew Jerri for a short time, but her love for others was so evident. May the memories becomes sweet balm to your heart.

Tam and Chad- I have been thinking about all the times with you guy and your parents. The countless nights hanging together as our parents drank coffee, smoked cigarettes, maybe played cards or dice. Your Mom's laughter, smile, and sweet genuine personality is what I remember the most. I regret that I did not talk with her more in the later years. If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to call. Tell Emerson I am thinking of him too and give him a big hug.

Randy and Family

My condolences to Jerri's family. I first met Jerri at the bank when she was a teller there but got more acquainted with her at my granddaughter Ashley's wedding and we became friends. I remember one morning, after she had retired from the bank, she called me and told me she was sitting in my driveway. I told her to come on in and have breakfast. I had just taken a pan of breakfast bake out of the oven and she liked it so much, she ate 3 helpings! She was a joy to know and I am happy to call her a friend.

I was in shock and so saddened to hear this. JerriAnn was always so friendly, kind and thoughtful. She loved her family and she loved her friends. I always looked for her at the car shows at Indian Lake and we would chat. I will miss that and I will miss you JerriAnn, RIP. My condolences to her family.
