Aunt Gerri was the kindest, sweetest, nicest person I have known. I have many happy memories of Aunt Gerri from childhood through adulthood that I will always treasure in my heart. I will miss Aunt Gerri’s laugh, and I will deeply miss her. Sending my deepest sympathies to all with Love and Big Hugs.
