Jerri, I keep thinking of the last time I saw you. We talked and laughed and had such a good time. Even though sometimes we would go a while without speaking or seeing each other, when we did run into each other there was always a lot of laughter and never a moment of quiet. I will always remember your wonderful laugh and beautiful smile. Thank you for being my longtime friend. You were such a wonderful person and a kind soul. I know I will see you again, and I can't wait to hear your laughter and see your smile. Until then, you will be sadly missed and forever loved. R.I. P girl.. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to all of her family.

I love her very much and am so saddened by this loss. I am so sorry for your loss Phyllis, Kelly, Jamie and Tyson. Love and prayers for you all!

So sorry Kelly and Phyllis for your loss. Last time I saw Jerri when she came to my house in East Bank. I will remember her with her smile on her face. Wish she could have fought her demons like my sister would have. Love and prayers to all.

I was very saddened to learn of Jerri's passing. In high school, Jerri had such a bubbly personality and just a sweet person who always had a huge smile on her face. She was so much fun to be around and a good friend. I'm sorry that we lost touch. Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that my heart goes out to all of you. I am so sorry for your loss.
