Gerry was absolutely the sweetest woman. I met her at my sister-in-law's bridal shower (Michelle Karnes Lindamood) and she gave the most endearing advice about love. She was such a kind heart and the world was truly better from her presence. May she rest in peace and her family recognize her beautiful influence on this earth.
