Mr.Gerald, Sherri and Bitch
I have so many memories of weekend sleepovers when I stayed at my grandparents house. Ms.Marji always treated me so well and if I couldn't be at my grandma's she would always send you Sherri or Gerilynn to sleep over there. That meant a lot to me and my family. Much love and prayers to ya'll at this time. Have faith and the Lord will get you through.
