  • Our family will miss Aunt Gerry dearly and our hearts are heavy, but we have been blessed to be part of her family. We will always remember her laugh and the fun times from the past. We were lucky to be able to spend the holidays with her. She could bake the best pies and when she brought a cherry pie, we called it a Gerry pie. God Bless all of you.

  • Jennifer and family
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. I have a lot of good memories of your family growing up. Your mother was a good woman and will be missed.

  • To add to Tom and Karen’s sentiments, just like our grandmother, Aunt Gerry’s mother, I will never forget that warm and kind spirit, the joy in her laugh, the sparkle in her eye, not to discount the pies! While this loss is difficult, we carry many happy times and memories to sustain us as well as knowing that right now she has reunited with her family in heaven.

    To Jennifer and the rest of the family, you are in our thoughts and our prayers. May God’s love surround you, embrace you and give you peace.
