Jeri was my twin sister. We stayed close throughout our years. She was always in the know about the best make-up, lotions and vitamins and made sure I was using them too.
Jeri was very independent and I would have to force my help on her. Even when it came to lawn work and shoveling she would do a little at a time saying it was her exercise.
While growing up we played tricks on eachother with our brothers. When we were young Jeri was terrified of worms, it was rainy outside so I gathered a bunch of worms and put them in an envelope and told Jeri, she got a letter. She was so excited while opening it and then threw the envelope screaming, and worms went everywhere in the house.
I am going to miss Jeri so much but I know she is in a better place and is now my guardian angel!

Jeri is my aunt but so much like a sister. We shared secrets like sisters, we fought like sisters and had unconditional love for each other. Jeri was always involved in my life. She picked my name, we hung out even during my teenager years she was like a close friend. When I was in grade school Jeri used to come up with things to nourish our hair and experiment on me. She tried eggs, avocado, and much more. I let her do this until she tried Mayonnaise. My hair was greasy for weeks while trying to wash it out! I have so many memories of Jeri. I used to give her a hard time because she would never let me leave her house without giving me something. If she knew I was coming she would buy things to give me. If I stopped by without her knowing she would make me take a roll of toilet paper. She just could not let me leave without taking something. As much as I teased her about it I am doing it now with my kids! It sucks to lose someone close but sucks even more during COVID because it has robbed us of time spent with loved ones. I love you forever auntie Jeri!!
