Worked with Kerri Lynn for several years. She was a good friend, as well as a co-worker. I am so sorry for your loss and pray that God puts his arms around all of you to help in the time to come. She loved all of you dearly.

I worked with Keri and her mom at Hills Cafe in Vega. She was such a sweet, hard working young girl. Admired her greatly. Sorry for your loss.
