I always remember Aunt Gerry as a gentle lady who was always interested in all the kids and grandkids. I wasn't around her a lot in my growing up years, but when she moved to Columbia, Mom was so excited that she could see Gerry more. I think they enjoyed making up for lost time when they were able to visit. Gerry loved her family very much, and they loved her right back.
With sympathy for your loss.
