It truly saddens my heart to hear the passing of such a wonderful, happy and exciting woman. She was always a joy to see when she came into Erwin Town Hall to pay her water bill. Sometimes she would have the bill and sometimes she didn't. She would always seem to be rushing . Always almost out of breath trying to make sure she paid her bill. We shared a lot of good conversations and laughter. She always loved to drive down and see her sister in law. She told me all about the drive and how much fun they had and how exciting she was just to leave Erwin for just a bit to travel even if it wasn't far. I know her granddaughter started to come and pay her bill due to her not feeling well. I will really miss her smile, laughter and conversations. Her eyes would brighten with excitement when she spoke of going to see her sister in law. I will never forget her and I pray that God will fill the void and give you strength to get through.

I am so sorry for your loss. Ms. Gerri was so friendly and spirited when I went by her room. She always spoke to my aunt when she visited the SPARK unit. When we walked by her room, Ms. Gerri always had a kind word. She was a very sweet lady and I will miss seeing and talking to her. God bless you all.

We enjoyed Mrs Gerry very much. My dad became very close to her and her husband the last couple of years. She was one of the sweetest, Christian women I know. I enjoyed all our chats and visits. Will be missed greatly.
