ADD A MEMORY
Mary Beasley

I remember the times I would stop by and chat for a while when you were working at the mall and we would sometimes go to lunch at Lums. Great times!!! Later on we saw each other at our mutual grandchildren's birthday parties or when you would stop by to pick Ryan up for lunch or to stay a few days at your house when Rich and Cindy were on vacation. Then, due to my deteriorating health, we saw each other less and less, but I thought of you " Oh so many times" and I'm sure those times will continue. Please rest in Peace Jerri.

Jerri was a real good friend. I always enjoyed going to lunch
with her, and our sometimes long phone calls. I am glad I got
the opportunity to be her friend, and I surely will miss her
dearly. Jerri, you will now rest in peace!

Love,
Your friend

Jerri,

Five years is far too short of a time to have known you, but in that short time I was able to see what a truly kind and thoughtful grandmother you were. I'm thankful for the memories of my time spent with you and I'm privileged to have been able to receive your kindness and acceptance. Your impact on family, friends, and everyone you touched has shaped us all for the better. Thank you for this, and rest in peace.

Much love always,

Jason
